Find a sportsground

Find a suitable sportsground for your school sports or pre-season training.

Available sportsgrounds

Every term we compile a list of available sportsgrounds for use. If a sportsground doesn’t appear in this list it has been:

  • assessed as “restricted use only” and will be allocated in accordance with the sportsground allocation policy; or
  • has been closed as a result of a capital works program.

Suitability of the sportsground

It is important you check the available facilities, dates and times of the sportsground before applying. It is important to note:

  • We will not provide access to sports pavilions, please ensure that you check the toilets availability at each venue are suitable before requesting use of a sportsground.
  • Sportsgrounds can only be used for the purpose listed.
  • The grounds highlighted in bold are turf wicket sportsgrounds and will have the centre wicket isolated at all times. The fencing is not to be removed at any time and schools are advised that these grounds are only suitable for modified sports, not full ground access.

Once you have a suitable available sportsground you can apply by submitting the following forms:
