Equipment and infrastructure
Schools are not to make any alterations to the Council facility, including line marking playing surfaces, without prior written consent from Council. Hirers must not erect temporary structures (such as marquees, volleyball nets, goal post etc.) or insert any items into the sportsground (such as pegs), without prior written consent from Council.
Grounds marked with a asterisk * are turf wicket sportsgrounds and will have the centre wicket isolated for matches. 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.
It is the responsibility of the hirer to ensure that any current State Government restrictions are adhered to and that a COVID Safe plan is in place. If you are required to cancel any bookings due to State Government restrictions, you will receive a full refund of any money paid towards a ground that has not yet been used.
As fees are applied per oval, per term any use of the oval before cancellations made mean no refunds can be issued.
If the sportsground becomes too degraded due to weather or over-use and is deemed to pose a safety issue, Council reserves the right to cancel bookings. In this instance we will endeavour to relocate you to another sports field.
Times of use
Sportsgrounds are not available for use outside of the hours listed above. Schools requesting after hours usage of a sportsground will be subject to additional charges if the request is approved.
Details of each sportsgrounds’ final date of use are listed above. Some grounds will be available later than others depending on seasonal change over requirements.
