Closure of fields

Turf games (junior and senior) and turf training will always be on regardless of the weather – games only cancelled in extreme weather conditions such as thunderstorms, lightening or major floods.

It is rare for matches to be played on grass fields these days. Grass games may occasionally be postponed or cancelled due to wet weather. Notification of field closures is often made at the last minute in an effort to maximise the chance of the playing.

First contact your coach – they will be first to hear if games have been postponed or cancelled.

To confirm if fields are open, call the local council wet weather hotline, visit their web site, or listen to local radio stations:

  • ABC 94.5 (FM)
  • ZZZ 100.9 (FM)
  • 2LM 900
