We are delighted to announce and share our draft plan for an exciting new Sports Park Development project that we are working on.  This will greatly benefit Freyberg students as well as the local community.

 Freyberg Sports Development Park

Project  1    Install lights on new outdoor Multi-Sport Tiger Turf

  • Turf currently accommodates combination of 6 tennis courts, 1 basketball court, 3 netball courts, 1 hockey turf
  • Once “lit up” turf could be hired by the community to maximise usage


Project  2    Outdoor Football/Futsal Turf

  • Land between Freyberg TPU and Freyberg Gyms/Freyberg Community Pools – currently has minor use for field events
  • Full size football turf which could also be used for 3-4 full size futsal courts or 6-8 junior futsal courts
  • Full outdoor lighting to maximise usage
  • Potential relocation of Red Sox clubrooms/function centre to slope above football/futsal field(s)


Project  3    Indoor Multi-Sport Stadium

  • Land above project 2 and next to Freyberg Craig Centre and Vautier Park – currently used as a football field and for field events
  • Stadium could provide overflow for Arena Manawatu facilities to assist PNCC in providing sporting facilities for the local community and to attract major tournaments
  • Sports could include futsal, basketball, netball, volleyball, badminton and many others
  • Alternative option could be another full size football turf which could also be used for 3-4 full size futsal courts or 6-8 junior futsal courts


Project 4    Freyberg Fitness Centre

  • Upgrade existing Freyberg gyms (2), weights room and 4 changing rooms – current facility could be expanded to include additional “gym” equipment
  • Facility to be available for hire by local community


Project  5    All Weather Athletic Track and Rugby Field

  • Land between Freyberg and Ross Intermediate – currently used for athletics, football and rugby
  • Rugby field (inside athletic track) to be used for full range of field events outside rugby season
  • Alternative option could be 2 multi-purpose turfs (eg Rugby/Football/Futsal)


Project  6    Hostel

  • PNCC land next to Vautier Park and Freyberg TPU – current site of Red Sox clubrooms/function centre
  • To accommodate growing number of Freyberg international students (during school terms) and accommodating participants in sports tournaments during 12 weeks of school holidays


Project  7    Edwards Pit Park

  • Recreational park under continuous development
  • Consider how above recreational park development could complement Freyberg Sports Park development to achieve win win outcome
