Close

Sports Ground Closure

During times of extreme weather conditions Council will assess its playing fields and update the information line by 3pm Monday to Thursday and by 12 noon on Fridays. This information line is available to the public 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Club responsibilities

When Council determines that grounds are open users remain responsible for determining the suitability of grounds for use of individual grounds in terms of player safety and potential ground damage and are requested to exercise discretion in the event of any wet weather.

If sportsgrounds are closed by Council, clubs and organisations do not have the authority to approve their use.

Council’s decision on whether to close a sportsground will be based on the likelihood of injury to players, the likelihood of damage to the playing surface and the prevailing weather forecast.

If Council’s ground closure instructions are ignored and play goes ahead, the user will be responsible for the full cost of repair to the field(s) and their usage arrangements may be terminated.

Even if Council deems a sportsground to be open at 12.00pm on Friday, clubs and organisations don’t have to play if rain occurs later that day or during the weekend and injury to players or damage to the sportsground becomes a possibility.

Information Line

If you aren’t sure if a sporting ground is open in the former Auburn area phone 9735 1299 before using to confirm that it is open and available for use.

If you aren’t sure if a sporting ground is open in the former Holroyd area phone 9294 1418 before using any to confirm that it is open and available for use.
