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.
