Status of sportsgrounds

PAGE UPDATED 7/10/22

All ovals and sportsgrounds are closed.

Next review: 11 October


Council is required to close its sports grounds and ovals from time to time in response to adverse weather conditions and other circumstances. The decision to close and reopen sports grounds and ovals is made on a needs basis. When grounds are CLOSED it is to prevent damage to the sporting fields, usually during wet weather. 

If grounds are declared CLOSED on the day of scheduled training, then training is not permitted. If grounds are declared OPEN, training is permitted at the discretion of the club.

  • Clubs and users are to conduct their own risk assessments for suitability of use for players and to avoid/reduce damage to the turf
  • Council is mowing the ovals, but there may still be long grass in patches and grass clippings on the ground
  • The ovals could still be damp in places due to the regular rain storms occurring  
  • Ovals may still be wet in sections, if so play is not permitted on the oval
