Disappointment Oval, Ballarat, Victoria

Disappointment Oval, in the City of Ballarat, has a grand grandstand. Heritage-listed, no doubt.

Disappointment Oval has a cute caravan. For faithful fans of Redan.


It has neat netball courts. Symmetrical, as one would expect.


It has nice entrance gates.


It has history. Heaps of it.

It has light towers.

Scoreboard? It has this bland electronic board hidden underneath this bland rollerdoor. Very, very disapponting.


Fortunately, my colleague, professional photographer Eric Algra, took a photo of the previous scoreboard at City Oval a few years ago. Thank you Eric.
