Dallas Brooks Reserve is one of the main sporting reserves servicing the township of Mornington and is home to the Mornington Soccer Club and the Beleura Junior Sports Club.

The current soccer and AFL playing fields have poor surface and soil conditions, as well as poor drainage resulting in increased damaged. There are also problems with the surface shapes, levels, and size compliance.
