Own your piece of the Main Oval

June 18, 2021

For generations of boys at St Patrick’s College, our Main Oval has been their own personal field of dreams.

Often regarded as one of the best playing surfaces in Ballarat, it has been the cherished home turf for thousands of footballers, cricketers, athletes, rugby players and general physical education students.

Nearly every Old Collegian has their own treasured memory revolving around its pristine grass.

Yet now, with new advancements in turf and drainage technology, we need to reinvest in the Main Oval to ensure it maintains its reputation and provides the best field possible for future generations of Paddy boys.

With a planned reconfiguration and resurfacing we can both maintain the current size of the Main Oval, provide a new, elite and properly-drained playing surface, while creating car parking spaces around the perimeter.

We also plan to encircle the Main Oval with a new white picket fence, with each picket being personally engraved.

For a price of just $200 you can buy your own engraved picket and help contribute to the cost of this major oval makeover.

Your contribution can also ensure your name encircles the Main Oval for decades to come. Or you may wish to purchase one as a unique gift for someone who you know holds St Patrick’s College close to their heart.

And, of course, there is no limit on the number of pickets you can buy.

To become involved simply visit www.trybooking.com/BSAAP and donate online.

For further information please call the College’s Director of Development Mr Roger Le Grand on 5322 4450 or the College Development Office on 5322 4442.

This is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to have your own special piece of St Patrick’s College history.
