Booking a Sports Ground
The Shire maintains over 60 sportsgrounds on the Peninsula, which form part of Shire's network of public open space. Our sportsgrounds are for shared, informal community use outside of booking periods.
Sports Facilities such as ovals, pitches, courts and some cricket nets are available for casual (one off or irregular) hire for schools, private sports academies, associations, commercial businesses and community groups located within the Mornington Peninsula Shire, outside the dates and times allocated to sports clubs.
