Most sporting clubs use our facilities on a seasonal or annual basis, under user license and lease agreements. These outline terms and conditions of use. This ensures adequate access to facilities (pitches, ovals, etc.) at the right time of the year e.g. AFL in winter, cricket in summer.

Sports ground and facility inspections

We do monthly inspections on all our managed sporting reserves to ensure they're at an acceptable standard for use. Each sports ground is given a percentage rating out of 100. 

  • Facilities scoring 75% or above are available for use
  • Reserves scoring below 75% have their use reduced or eliminated until the ground reaches an acceptable standard.

Facility inspections are also done on a bi-annual basis, focusing on both the clubs’ and our compliance with items covered by all Sports Facility User Agreements. Some of the items that are checked include:

  • Facility cleanliness
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Potential hazards.

Clubs get inspection results in an email with a list any the works they need to undertake (if applicable), and the works that we are responsible for.

General assistance

If your club needs day-to-day assistance; wants to report facility maintenance issues; or to organise a meeting to discuss club/ facility development matters, please contact our Sport and Recreation team:
