Reserve and ground information

Maintenance Period

A two week maintenance period program is scheduled at all City reserves in between seasons.

General maintenance period works are scheduled during office hours, which are unlikely to impact training or game days.

Should major renovation works be required for a reserve, that is expected to exceed the general two week maintenance period and impact the club's operation, notification will be provided at the earliest opportunity before the renovations commence.

Line Marking on Reserves

As per the Terms and Conditions of Hire - markings, layout and dimensions of playing areas are the responsibility of the club. All markings on grass are to be in Professional Sports Grass Line marking paint only to be used in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and appropriate safety measures. No chemical additions may be added to the paint as it results in turf death or decline. Failure to comply with the Terms and Conditions allows the City the rights to cancel any seasonal or regular booking. 

Please visit the Sporting reserves page for more information on reserve hire and line marking.
