Status of sportsgrounds

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.

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

Specific Ovals:

  • Summerhayes No 1 Oval is closed to 1 April 2020
  • Ovals from Katoomba to Mt Victoria may still be wet and the grass long and as a result may not be suitable for use. If wet do not use the oval.

As per the above conditions users are to undertake their own risk assessment  for suitability of use for players and  to reduce  damage to the turf.
