Ground Availability

During April and October each year, Sporting Associations have the exclusive right to make bookings at all playing fields as part of the bi-annual allocation process. Exclusivity applies for bookings between October - March (summer season) and April -September (winter season). From 1 May and 1 November, this exclusivity expires and grounds are available for all hirers.

Accordingly, no ground availability information can be displayed online for either the summer or winter seasons until the allocation period expires.

In certain circumstances a conditional booking may be accepted. Please contact the Sportsgrounds Maintenance and Improvements Office on 6207 5141 for details.
