ACH Group Stadium at Glenelg

ACH Group supports Glenelg community

ACH Group has lent its support to the Glenelg community through a Stadium Naming Rights partnership signed in November 2018.

Formerly Gliderol Stadium, the sporting complex that houses the Glenelg Football Club and Glenelg Cricket Club is now known as ACH Group Stadium.

Glenelg Football Club Chief Executive Officer Glenn Elliott said the naming rights partnership would further strengthen the relationship between ACH Group and the Glenelg Football Club.

“Now established at the Glenelg Oval precinct, this exciting announcement confirms ACH Group’s long-term commitment to the local area,” Mr Elliott said. “As with ACH Group, Glenelg Football Club is a local not-for-profit entity with an established presence since its foundation in 1920. The Club promotes sporting participation leading to healthier lifestyles for South Australians of all ages.” “We share common ambitions including knowing our customers well, providing personalised service, being flexible to adapt to changing circumstances and developing strong partnerships. The synergies between the two entities are strong which will ensure a strong partnership.”

For 65 years, ACH Group has supported thousands of South Australians and Victorians through their ageing journey. ACH Group offers a broad range of services that support people to engage and connect to the community, live well at home with support, in a retirement unit or residential care home and to maintain and even improve their health and wellbeing.

ACH Group’s 1,700 employees and more than 400 volunteers share the belief that older people should be valued and in control of their lives and pride themselves on challenging the stereotypes when it comes to ageing.

The Stadium at Glenelg has a capacity of 15,000 and has a main grandstand on the western wing as well as family-friendly grassed mound. The Stadium houses the Glenelg Football Club offices, President’s Function Room and Glenelg Club, open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Also located on the Brighton Road side of the ground is the home of the Glenelg Cricket Club.

ACH Group opened its Health Studio 50+ upstairs at the club in February 2018.

Resident Profile - Meet Petrie

Petrie has lived and travelled around Australia and overseas much of her life. Petrie was living in Holland before coming back to Australia again a few years ago to be close to her family here again. Petrie had been used to living in big houses with gardens but also in high-rise and apartment buildings in many different cities. She was very pleased to discover a similar apartment lifestyle option for her retirement when coming back to Adelaide. When she found Spence on Light, she fell in love with everything it offers: the cosmopolitan location, the beautiful sunset views from her balcony, the contemporary design of the apartment and friendly neighbours.

Petrie added “I don’t like traffic and I am used to good public transport, so this suits my lifestyle and not needing a car. I’m still working part time for myself and for the University of Adelaide which is walking distance. As I live on the top floor of Spence on Light, I feel as if I now have my own little penthouse.”

Petrie loves having easy access to all that Adelaide CBD has to offer culturally, plus the social interaction with other residents, but also enjoys her own space. She said “The beauty of living in an apartment is that you can be apart when you want to be. It’s so private and yet secure here!”
