Wear and tear on grounds is compounded in wet weather conditions. Council makes the decision to close grounds to ensure they remain in good condition.
Weekday ground closures
The decision is made by 9am following the inspection of fields by council staff. Closure notices will be posted on this page and on the wet weather line (9710 0105).
Clubs or associations are required to abide by council's decision. Failure to comply by playing or training on a ground that has been closed means the club will be liable for all restoration costs if the grounds are damaged. Clubs may lose the use of the ground for following seasons.
Weekend ground closures
Decisions on cancellation of weekend sport is made by the relevant sporting association. There will be exceptions where council will make the decision for all associations regarding weekend fixtures.
Contact your club on weekends or check their website for updates.
