Wet Weather and Sports Ground Update


Wet Weather Update

All turf sports grounds are OPEN from Saturday 24 September except for Bob Campbell Oval and Burns Bay Reserve which will remain CLOSED until further notice.

Blackman Park synthetic fields B1 and B2 remain OPEN.

Wet Weather Number: 9911 3585

Council may decide to close turf fields based on:

  • Weather reports;
  • the risk of injury to players;
  • the sport played and the potential for damage to the playing surface; and 
  • the condition of the ground when inspected.

Ground closures can occur at short notice. Schools, sporting clubs, sporting organisations, personal trainers and other commercial activities, do NOT have the authority to approve the use of sporting grounds when Council has made the decision to close the grounds.  If they use the closed grounds, they will be liable for the full cost of repairs and may lose access to use Council’s grounds in the future.

When Council has made the decision to close the turf fields, no refund will be granted to Seasonal Hirers.  Casual hirers may request a refund in writing within 5 business days following ground closure.
