Wet weather conditions and regulations

In the event of continuous rain, Council may close sporting fields after considering the following factors: 
  • Rain has been falling for a couple of days, or there has been unprecedented rain during the day/night with the forecast of more rain.
  • Grounds are saturated and holding water
  • Consultation undertaken with sporting associations with regards to weekend play
  • Inspection of each field to determine playability. There are no blanket closures, unless after discussion with a particular sporting association, which may request for all their fields to be closed rather than opening one or two fields
  • Other neighbouring Councils have made decisions to close.
Please note: Decisions regarding weekend closures are usually made on a Friday afternoon, particularly if the grounds have been heavily saturated and if there is forecast of more rain. This system is preferred by clubs and associations to prevent the purchasing ofperishable stock supplies for their canteens. If the grounds are not saturated, but still wet under foot, Council may allow the final decision to play on the weekend to the discretion of the individual sporting association.
