Sports Field Closures

COVID-19 Update 

Council continues to work under the guidance of State and Federal Governments, however, the onus is on community sporting groups and organisations to make sure you comply with all relevant legislation and manage the risks associated with the current COVID-19 situation.

To view full details of  the latest release - Click here. 

Council managed sports fields may be Closed due to inclement weather or sports field renovations. Closures will be updated here after 2pm Monday - Friday (excluding Public Holidays). Wet weather inspections prior to weekends are undertaken on Fridays no later than 2pm. If a field is determined to be Closed on a Friday or prior to a Public Holidays period, it then stays Closed until a further inspection can occur on the first working day the following week.

A field status of OPEN does not guarantee games will be played, as cancellations are also at the sporting club's discretion. Players should always contact their clubs for more information on the day. As the page notes the last date content was updated, this means that the field status remains the same.
