Casual Booking Requests
Provided your group has public liability insurance cover, sporting reserves and pavilions within Wyndham can be booked on a casual basis through a booking process. Bookings are subject to availability.
If your group doesn’t have insurance, grounds are still available for community use. However, if a group comes along that has made a booking (they will have a Wyndham City issued confirmation letter) you will need to find another space to play and allow the group with the booking to commence their activity without disruption.

Women in Sport
Sport is a great way to have fun, keep in touch with friends and improve health and wellbeing.
But there are reasons why some women and girls aren’t as involved in sport as they would like. Maybe the local club doesn’t have a women’s competition. Perhaps, the uniforms make them feel self-conscious. Or maybe they can’t commit the time to turning up every week.
Whatever, the reason, we can all agree that getting more women and girls into sport (and this includes committee members and officials) is a good thing.
So, if you or your club would like to find ways to increase women’s and girl’s participation or locate grants, events or programs linked to women’s and girls’ participation, explore the resources below.
