Sportsfields Open/Closed Status

Sportsfields are OPEN

The fields are open at clubs' discretion. Some fields are still wet in certain areas. All clubs must do a risk assessment prior to using the fields.

Our sporting facilities can be hired seasonally (winter/summer) or for events. Larger events may require a Local Activity Application, which must be submitted at least six weeks before the event to allow for processing (application fee applies).
