Looking after your field
Each year, the City spends more than $1.2 million maintaining the various sports fields for clubs to use. This includes reticulation, mowing, fertilising, top dressing and a number of other practices which the City’s Parks and Environment team undertake to keep fields in the best condition possible. There are also a number of things that sporting clubs can do to help keep
the fields in top condition over the course of your season, including:
- Moving training around the fields – in particular, try not to train in goal mouths as they are high wearing spots on the fields.
- Setting up a sacrificial training area off the main playing pitches.
- Doing high intensity training, such as agility drills off the main playing pitch and not in central areas.
- Do not use any sort of herbicide in your line marking. Besides being in contravention of your hire conditions, it often takes years for the grass to recover – not only in the lines themselves but in other areas where herbicide may be spilt. Refer to Section 8 Conditions of Hire – Active Reserves.
