Revesby Little Athletics Club community thrilled with ‘new home ground’ opening

THE Revesby Workers’ Little Athletics community has gathered to celebrate the official opening of their new home grounds at Kelso North Regional Sporting Precinct.

Revesby Workers’ Little Athletics President Christine Butters reflected on the club’s humble beginnings at Smith Park, East Hills, 44 years ago, then known as East Hills Little Athletics.
The club experienced growth in its community base and following sponsorship from Revesby Workers’ Club, changed its name to Revesby Workers’ Little Athletics and moved to grounds at Amour Park, Revesby and then to Western Sydney University at Milperra in 2001.
“With the need to accommodate a growing athletic community in the area and secure permanent fit-for-purpose grounds, the committee approached the council in 2015 which saw the start of the journey to the opening of the new state-of-the-art athletics facilities at Kelso North come to fruition for the 2023/2024 little athletics season,” Ms Butter said.
The new grounds will not only accommodate future little athletes and athletics competitions, but is also a key facility to cater for school carnivals throughout the year and for years to come.
Ms Butters says these new facilities have been possible due to ongoing collaboration and partnerships with the council and via NSW Government grants including the Greater Cities Sports Facilities funding and the Club Grants Category 3 Infrastructure Grants program.
