With the high use that Tranby oval receives the ground has deteriated to the point in some areas where it is unusable for games. Council and the school are currently working to repair the playing surface and hopefully will be ready for next season. Before our move to a permanent ground in season 2023 (details to be provided once official). For this year we have secured use of Shoalwater Oval for all U8 and up games. The 3 rounds of home games for Hubs will still be at Tranby as we can mark pitches around the degraded areas. Training will continue at Tranby and Paul Garnett. At Shoalwater we access to the northern pitch for U13 U14 and womens teams and the South east corner for U8-12. We have access to toilets but not club house or change rooms. Shoalwater FC currently have two Veterans teams and will be using the pitch next to the clubhouse. I just ask everyone to be respectful of the facility and the other club as we will be sharing facilities for the season and they have supported of our use of the oval to allow us to have safe place to play.
