All applicants are required to have current Public Liability insurance to cover this event. Bookings will not be approved until a copy of the applicant’s policy is provided.

Application process

Once an application has been processed and approved, Council emails the applicant a confirmation letter.

For any booking that cannot be accommodated, we will contact the applicant and other arrangements may be explored.

As a result of permanent booking arrangements between tenant club/s and Council, your booking may be transferred or cancelled where additional play will be detrimental to the condition of the ground surface.
