Available sportsgrounds

  • 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:
