Council has created and maintains sporting grounds for the use of the public. Some of these facilities are shared with local State Schools.

Council provides the necessary grounds to play a wide range of sports, including; cricket, rugby union, rugby league, Aussie rules, soccer, touch football, netball, basketball, tennis, hockey, baseball, frisbee, and athletic sports.  Tennis Courts in Willoughby - 205 KB has information for those wishing to play tennis.

Sporting organisations and clubs use Council grounds for training and competition. They are able to be hired either on a casual or seasonal basis.

To keep surfaces in a good and safe condition, the number of hours a week that grounds can be hired is restricted. Grounds may also be closed during or after wet weather. To find out whether a sportsground is open or closed after rain, check the Ground Closures page or phone the Wet Weather Line on 9777 7631.

If you would like to hire a sportsground, please fill in the Sportsground Booking Application Form.
