Casual bookings

You can hire Boroondara sportsgrounds and halls for casual use for events such as kids' birthday parties, sports clinics and corporate sports events.

The facilities can be hired at a cost of $230 per four hours (with the option to pro-rata if required). A security deposit of $200 is required and will be refunded after the post-event inspection by council.

Request a booking

You can request a booking online however all bookings will be confirmed by our Sports team.

To request a booking, view the sportsground or hall facilities databases to find a venue that suits you.

Once you have chosen a venue, visit our Reserves Manager to view availability and submit a booking request.

Our Sports team will confirm the availability and send you an invoice. Once fees have been paid, you will be sent a final confirmation of your booking.

If you have booked a hall or pavilion, you will need to arrange key pick up with the Sports team prior to the event.

Availability and information

Halls are available for bookings:

  • 9am to 10pm, Monday to Thursday
  • 9am to 11pm, Friday and Saturday
  • 9am to 8pm, Sunday
When booking a hall you will need to bring your own crockery and consumables (toilet paper, rubbish bags, etc). Venues must be left in a clean and tidy condition.

Public toilets are available at many of the sites. Check availability through the sportsground facilities database.

Access to hall and pavilion toilets and change rooms can be requested separately but an additional fee of $57.50 per hour may apply.

The sportsgrounds and many of the halls are used by sporting clubs on weekends and weeknights so availability may be limited during these times. You can check availability through the Reserves Manager.  

Please note: during the changeover of summer and winter sports (March and September), if bookings by sports clubs have not been finalised, you may be advised to submit your request closer to the event date.
