Ground Updates: Covers and Closures

Grounds and Covers Status as at 15/3/2018



COVERS are recommended TO BE PUT DOWN ON FRIDAY as whilst rain is a low chance, the wicket should be protected from the heavy dew we get at this time of the year to guarantee a hard surface for play- but ensure that they are lifted on Saturday as per the Covers Policy.

The decision to cover the wicket on Saturday after play rests entirely with the umpires.

As per the covers rules, the lower placed team in the final draw is responsible for the application and lifting of the covers on Friday 16th March, unless they arrange with the other team to undertake this duty, THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY IS WITH THE TEAM LISTED FIRST ON THE TABLE BELOW.

Please read the Covers Policy if you are unsure of the protocols.

To access covers, keys are required at Berowra, Parklands, Storey Park, The Glade, however, not at Turramurra and Kenthurst.

To access the correct key, contact: Berowra Oval / Berowra Club, Parklands/Mt Colah Club, Storey Park/Hornsby club, THe Glade/ Normanhurst club. See Local Rules book for Senior Coordinator contact.

If this is the situation, both teams are to inform the SCC and Geoff Hasler, as instructed within theGrand Final Rules circulated with the Senior Competition Semi Final Draw. Failure to fulfil the obligations regarding covers may lead to a disciplinary action.

Should you have any problems in understanding the above, please call Geoff Hasler on 0412 871 816
