Sporting grounds and courts for hire

From cricket nets to soccer ovals, spaces for netball and tennis, there are a range of sporting grounds and courts you can hire in PAE.

Looking to hire a sporting ground or court in PAE?

With more than 50 sporting grounds and courts in PAE, there are plenty of hire options available. However, we have existing hire arrangements for hire with many of the sporting clubs and groups based in PAE, on a seasonal basis. This means that not all sporting grounds and courts are available for hire.

Priority access to sporting grounds and courts is given to the primary lease holders and licensed clubs and organisations.

Enquiries for short-term and one-off hire are also welcome, subject to availability and seasonal requirements. Applications for casual hires are opened at the start of each season, and are assessed on a case-by-case basis, pending the length of use, suitability of activity and usage limits of each reserve. Any approved casual hirer requests are permitted for that season only.
