All ACT Government sportsgrounds will be closed today, Monday 24 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 to allow weekend competition to go ahead wherever possible.

The bureau forecasts a dreary week with a promising weekend ahead.
