All ACT sportsgrounds closed due to wet weather

Canfan 24 June 2014

All ACT Government sportsgrounds will be closed today Tuesday 24 June due to wet weather and the forecast of further showers.

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.

The rainfall yesterday averaged around 10mm and with a further forecast of rain for today, and with very cold temperatures and low evaporation rates, grounds will be slow to dry out.

EDD apologises for any inconvenience.

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