Sportfield Status and Wet Weather Update

Following consultation with community sports organisations, Council has changed the way it manages the closure of sports fields during and after periods of wet weather. The new approach will came into effect on 1 January 2014.

The change is intended to give sporting associations and schools more control and responsibility in deciding whether the grounds are safe and suitable for use when Council does not have available resources to assess their condition, such as on weekends.

Download the full details of the process.

There are now 3 options for sports grounds status, open, closed and conditional:

  • OPEN: The field is open for all sports competitions, training and school use

  • CLOSED: The field is closed for all sports competitions, training and school use

  • CONDITIONAL: The field is closed for use unless certain conditions are met. If these conditions are met the controlling body of the sport or school competition has the authority to use the ground for competition games only

Current field status is shown in the table below. The status shown on a Friday or before public holidays is applicable to the current day and the following day/s of the weekend or public holiday. Current field status can also be obtained by calling Council's Wet Weather Hotline on 02 8250 4153

If the status is to be updated it will be done so by midday.

Please note: Even if council's sports fields are described as "OPEN", in the event of wet weather it is up to the individual club or association to make a decision on use, taking into consideration the condition of the field, any damage that may be caused and duty of care to the participants. In such circumstances, individuals should contact their club or association to confirm whether the club or association has made a decision to use the sports field.
