All ACT sportsgrounds closed due to wet weather

Released 12/11/2013

All ACT Government sportsgrounds will be closed today Tuesday 12th November due to wet weather and the forecast of further showers and possible thunderstorms.

The decision has been taken in order to minimise damage to the turf surfaces and in the interests of player safety.

The focus is on protecting grounds from unnecessary wear and tear during training and in allowing weekend competition to go ahead wherever possible.

Grounds will continue to be assessed throughout the week and will be re-opened when it is safe to do so.

Economic Development Directorate apologises for any inconvenience.

For further information on sportsground closures contact Canberra Connect on 13 22 81.
