Sporting grounds

AlburyCity manages 35 outdoor playing surfaces that are used for athletics, Australian Rules football, baseball, cricket, croquet, hockey, netball, tennis, touch football, rugby league, rugby union, skateboarding, soccer and softball

Most sports grounds are open to the general public. However, bookings are required for sporting clubs and organisations to use these facilities. This involves completing an application form including pre-season, seasonal and casual use. Clubs must have submitted a Sporting Ground Usage Agreement either prior to or at the same time as completing a Seasonal usage application.

Seasonal use of sporting grounds

Organisations that want to make use of a sporting ground on a regular basis (more than 4 sessions) need to complete a 2015/16 Sporting Ground Usage Agreement and a Seasonal Ground Use Application Form.

Casual use of sporting grounds

Organisations that want to make use of a sporting ground on a casual basis (up to 4 sessions) need to complete the Casual Ground Use Application Form.

Applications for ground use will be assessed by AlburyCity with a response provided within 10 working days. Usage of sporting grounds without approval from AlburyCity is not allowed.
