Coogee Oval is a sporting ground, located in Coogee, in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. It is home of the Randwick Rugby Union Club in winter, and Randwick Petersham Cricket Club in summer.

Facilities[edit]

One side of the ground is fully seated with terracing and a television tower behind it, with a grandstand/dressing rooms in the corner. In winter, temporary stands and temporary corporate facilities boost the capacity to around 5,000.[1] It is usually standing room only come game day, with some of the better seats on the balconies of the blocks of flats overlooking the ground. The oval is situated directly across the road from both Coogee Beach and Randwick Rugby Club.

The ground record crowd of 9246 was set on 22 June 1988 when Randwick lost 25-9 to the touring All Blacks.[2]
