Illawong Little Athletics Club
Since the mid 1970’s, Illawong Little Athletics Club has played a vital role in nurturing the sporting hopes and dreams of thousands of local children. Every Saturday, from September through to March, aspiring young athletes and their families gather to enjoy some healthy competition and the good company to be found among a close-knit community.
With over 250 registered athletes, the committee wanted to upgrade seating for the many young athletes and their families. And, with a season that runs through the hottest weather a Sydney summer can bring, it was essential that any solution blended comfort, shelter and a welcoming environment with a design befitting such an impressive arena. Importantly, as the massive complex caters for a variety of sports and is enjoyed by local schools and other sporting groups, durability, safety, and low maintenance were key requirements.
When the committee’s grant application was approved by the State Government, they turned to Felton Industries to meet the unique requirements of their brief. Our Double Bench Shelters, with a capacity to seat up to eight people in shaded comfort offered the perfect solution. Five Double Bench Shelters, manufactured from premium, long lasting, Australian aluminium were installed on time and on budget.
We’re pleased to say that everyone is very happy with the result. As club member Deborah Engeler put it, “I could not speak more highly of Felton Industries. The staff have been very professional, courteous and willing to assist to ensure the best outcome to suit the needs and budget of our organisation. I would not hesitate in recommending them to others.”
For us, that feels just like a personal best performance.
