Book a sportsground

Before you book

When hiring a sportsground applicants must first read: 

Points of note

A brief outline of some things to consider before booking a sportsground are detailed below:

Litter bins

Litter bins are essential if you are serving food or drink. As part of your booking, you need to hire one bin for every 30 people attending the function.

Back-to-back bookings and overstays

Council's grounds continue to be heavily booked. To ensure ground quality is maintained and that all hirers receive fair ground allocations, bookings times must be strictly adhered to.


The lights will be turned on at the time(s) specified by the hirer. If additional time is required for setting up and/or packing up, then this must be factored into the start and finish times of the booking.


When using Council sportsgrounds, please ensure that all vehicles are parked in the designated parking areas and not on a grassed area unless authorised by Council.


Marquees are not permitted in the North Sydney Council area.


Electric barbecues for public use can be found at the following locations:
