The Pulse Property Group Stadium, formerly known as Duracraft Stadium, was officially opened in 2006 by Her Worship the Mayor of Melville, Katherine Jackson. This international standard synthetic wet surface hockey field was developed by the Melville Hockey Club (Inc) with the assistance of Hockey WA, the Department of Sport and Recreation and the City of Melville.

The Turf is UV-resistant synthetic fibre, overlaid on a compounded rubber surface to form a shock-absorbing pad. This is a reticulated “wet turf” facility, fully lit to allow night time usage. It was most recently resurfaced, including the nstallation of a new shockpad, prior to the 2022 winter season.

Two player bunkers are located on the western side of the field, with seating and facilities for storing equipment. A technical room is situated between the two player bunkers and has access to controls for the PA system and electronic scoreboard. Ample seating is available in this screened control area for game officials.

Three full size grass training fields are located alongside the turf facilities. These are ideal for warm-ups and post-game warm-downs.

There are four newly-renovated (2020) unisex change rooms for the home and away teams. The change rooms contain shower and toilet facilities as well as a large change area. The change areas includes seating and a whiteboard for coaching use.

Oue new main clubroom was constructed in 2020, and includes a large function area with tables and chairs to seat up to 80 people, several large TV screens, a bar, kitchen and male and female bathrooms. The new building is elevated above the turf, allowing excellent viewing from both outside and inside the building. Limestone terracing along the western side of the turf provides seating for spectators, while large windows along the eastern side of the building allow a clear view of the whole turf from inside on cold, rainy or windy days. A large covered patio is situated at the south end of the clubhouse. Tables and chairs enable hockey enthusiasts to enjoy a meal and a drink whilst watching the game in progress. Gas heaters ensure warmth for night games, whilst the west side has pull-down blinds to keep rain out and warmth in. Two grandstands on the western side of the field, with roof and rear covering to keep out the weather, ensure great viewing. There is also an elevated, covered video photography facility at the north-western corner.

Safety nets are installed at the front of the viewing area to prevent damage from incoming balls.

Pulse Property Group Stadium has full bar facilities. A wide range of non-alcoholic and sports beverages are available, as well as beer, spirits and good quality wines. Prices are moderate and the service excellent. Snacks such as crisps, nuts and confectionery are also available over the bar.

The stadium also has full catering facilities. Our kitchen prepares healthy and satisfying meals as well as nutritious snacks. There is also a barbeque and gas pizza oven situated in a small courtyard at the northeast corner of the building, with direct access to the kitchen. A large ice machine is also situated in this courtyard.

Adequate parking facilities are available, including disabled parking and access to the viewing area.
