All ACT Government sportsgrounds will be closed for training and match play from today, Friday 23 July 2021 until Monday 26 July 2021 due to the wet weather. Closures include turf sportsgrounds but exclude the Melrose and Nicholls synthetic fields and the Woden athletics track.
The decision has been taken in order to minimise already damaged turf surfaces and in the interests of public safety.
Regular winter rainfall has not allowed grounds to sufficiently dry out and more wet weather is expected for the duration of the weekend.
The condition of the grounds will continue to be assessed with any decision on re-opening sportsgrounds to be made on Monday 26 July 2021.
