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.

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.


Wet Weather Closures

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

On your mobile phone go to

select the Facilities and Parks tab
view the availability of sporting grounds and parks.

Or, the same information is on the our Wet Weather Line 9936 8220.

The recorded message is updated at approximately 8am daily but it may be changed again later that morning if the weather clears. Note that some grounds drain better than others, so some may stay open, or open sooner.
