COVID-19 Update - Community Sport and Sportsgrounds
NSROC made contact with the NSW Office of Sport recently for advice on when sport training sessions and related activities can resume. The advised received was that the NSW Public Health Order signed on the 30th of March 2020 remains in force. This means that sports training/activities are not yet permitted on our sports ovals.
NSW Office of Sport is working closely with NSW and Australian Government on a framework to reboot sport in a COVID-19 environment. The NSW Government is considering these issues alongside other restrictions and will update the community should any changes to the Public Health Orders be made. If any new information is received, we will update Council’s website.
In the meantime, if you have any other queries or questions, please contact your sports’ peak body.
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.
