User groups include sports organisations, schools, business corporations and the general public.
We have a user-pays system, levying fees on the 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.
Hire or parks and reserves is restricted to 32 hours per week / per ground in Winter to maintain the playing surfaces in good condition.
