Stadium redevelopment project - work underway
The current Waitemata Table Tennis stadium in Parr’s Park, was built by volunteers in the 1970s is too small, didn’t meet building code, has a leaky asbestos roof and requires significant maintenance. In March 2017 Andrew Palmer, WTTA President, re-started a long term project to look at replacing the stadium. This council approved project has raised around $2million in grant funding and construction is due to start at the end of September and take around 9 months.
The new purpose built facility being built will double the size of the stadium allowing for the hosting of national tournaments and training camps as well as the introduction of para Table Tennis which is not currently possible in the existing facility.
Major contributors are Auckland Council (900,000), Western District Trust (300,000), TTCF (270,000), NZCT (146,000), Lotteries (100,000), Foundation North (50,000), Grassroots (50,000), Million Dollar Mission (27,668) and donations/loans from club members.
