Weather closes ACT sportsgrounds

Share Canberra's trusted news:

ALL ACT Government sportsgrounds are closed today due to the wet weather.

According to the Economic Development Directorate the decision was made to prevent damage to turf surfaces.

A spokesperson said a further assessment will be made later today and any decision on the sportsgrounds remaining closed will be made tomorrow morning before 9 am.

“Given the forecast for further heavy rain, the likelihood of the closures continuing remains high,” the spokesperson said.

“EDD apologises for any inconvenience.”
