COVID-19 Update - Community Sport and Sportsgrounds
The NSW Office of Sport advises on sport training sessions and related activities during Covid-19, consult their website here:
We maintain and manage a wide range of local sportsgrounds:
Sportsgrounds locations - map (567KB).
These cater for soccer, hockey, rugby league, rugby union, cricket and netball and more. Also available are cricket practice nets and netball hoops and courts. Many of the sportsgrounds have timed lights for night sports.
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 of parks and reserves is restricted to 32 hours per week / per ground in Winter to maintain the playing surfaces in good condition.
