Hire a Sports Facility

Council manages 52 sporting facilities for 21 sporting codes, including 132 full size fields and 65 hard courts. Many are available for seasonal allocation, casual hire or special event bookings. 

Seasonal Allocation

Council advertises for applications and undertakes an assessment process before each season to ensure a fair allocation of grounds for seasonal use. Allocation will be at Council's discretion, considering factors such as community benefit, prior usage and the need to schedule maintenance, ground regeneration and capital works.

Seasons are:

  • Summer season: 3rd Saturday in September to 1st Sunday in March
  • Winter season: 3rd Saturday in March to 1st Sunday in September
