Status of sportsgrounds

COVID-19 Update

If you are planning to use these facilities, please do so with caution. Make sure you wash your hands before and after you use any equipment.


Our sports ground hotline is a pre-recorded message and can be used to gain information on the ovals status - the hotline number is 4780 5617 and is updated frequently.

Ovals are open. However, clubs and users are required to conduct their own risk assessment to ascertain whether it is safe to play.  Clubs and users are advised that play should not proceed where it would cause damage to the fields. 

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

Updated: Tuesday 29 December at 3.23pm

Users are to conduct their own risk assessment prior to use for suitability of use / play due to recent wet weather.
