    Cricket Wickets

    Grounds marked with a red asterisk * are turf wicket sportsgrounds and will have the centre wicket isolated late in Term 3 in preparation for the summer season. The fencing is not to be removed at any time and schools are advised that these grounds are only suitable for modified sports and will not have full ground access at these times. Grounds with synthetic wickets will be covered unless otherwise stated and will therefore not have stump holes available.

    Allocated times for sportsgrounds 

    Dogs must be on leash within 20 metres of an area where an organised sporting event or the practising of the sporting event is taking place.

    Please refer to the timetable below for information regarding sportsgrounds training schedules. This schedule is intended to provide general guidance only and is subject to change. The page will be updated, if required, in mid-May when allocations are finalised. We ask our community to be respectful when sharing open spaces.
