Update – Closure of ACT Government sportsgrounds continue

All ACT Government sportsgrounds will remain closed for training and match play today, Monday 26 July 2021 due to the recent 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.

The ACT Government would like to thank the various sport peak bodies for their patience to allow grounds more time to dry out following the ongoing winter rainfall.

The condition of the grounds will continue to be assessed with any decision on re-opening sportsgrounds to be made on Tuesday 27 July 2021.
