Ground assessment

The surface conditions of the fields are checked in the early afternoon on weekdays during periods of wet weather.

The status of each field is updated as close as possible to 2pm Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.

If a field is closed on a Friday or before a public holiday it remains closed until the next working day.

Weekend users responsibility 

The final assessment of grounds by Council staff takes place on a Friday afternoon.

It remains the responsibility of the user groups to determine on game day if the ground is suitable for play.

If scheduled games take place on the weekend and cause excess damage to the grounds, the user groups are held liable. An invoice for any repairs required to return the ground to a playable state will be sent to the group who used the ground.
