The Ground- Cobden Community Bank Recreation Reserve
The ground is situated in the centre of Cobden and is completley grassed(no cement cricket pitch up the middle of the oval).
It has a designated and safe standing area for supporters and still ample car parking around the oval to park and view the game.
There is an upstairs function room the you can watch the game from a birds eye view and in the warmth this room also acts as our club rooms during the Football/Netball season.
We are the only ground that has lighting suitable for night games and thus we host at least two night games a year.
On game day we have a well stocked canteen and bar to keep our supporters happy.
The Club has just insatalled a new gym for the use of it's players.
Netballers are also well catered for. There is a separate and well equipped netball change rooms. There is two game courts so two games can be played simultaneously aswell as plenty of area for warming up.
