Released 13/05/2022

All ACT Government turf sportsgrounds are closed for training today, Friday 13 May 2022. Match play is unaffected and can proceed.

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 damage to turf surfaces after heavy rainfall yesterday and overnight.

The condition of the grounds will be assessed throughout today with the aim for grounds to be open for training and match play tomorrow Saturday 14 May 2022.

A further update on the conditions of sportsgrounds will be provided by 2.30 pm today.
