Sportsfields

We maintain and manage a wide range of local sportsgrounds. These cater for soccer, hockey, rugby league, rugby union, cricket and netball. Also available are cricket practice nets and netball hoops and courts. Many of the sportsgrounds have timed lights for night sports.

We have a user-pays system, levying fees on local schools, organisations and sporting groups who wish to hire sports fields exclusively for the purpose of organised sport.

The income generated maintains the facilities to a high standard. Fees and charges depend upon the type of facility being hired and the user group, for example there is a commercial rate, senior rate, juniors/schools rate and social/casual rate. User groups include sporting organisations, schools, business corporations and the general public.

Hire or parks and reserves is restricted to 32 hours per week / per ground during winter in order to maintain the playing surfaces in good condition.

Council offers a Mobile Information Service that informs hirers and users of the status of our sports grounds and facilities.
