You can submit your school term booking request for a sportsground or hall using our online booking system.

Request a venue booking online

If it's your first time using the online system, you'll need to create an account with a user name and password. 

Once you've created an account, you can view the availability of venues and submit your booking request.


  • You can book a sportsground, a sportsground with a hall, or a hall.
  • A hall is referred to as a pavilion when it is located next to a sportsground.
  • Our sportsgrounds and halls are used by sporting clubs on weekends and weeknights, so availability may be limited during these times.
  • During the changeover of summer and winter sports (March and September), school bookings may be limited at Council sports venues.

For more information about hiring our sportsgrounds or halls, call the Leisure Services Officer on 9278 4444.
