Side Line Behaviour

Remember:  Positive, encouraging words is all that is to be heard by the players on the Court and the Umpires.  No comments or words should be uttered about the standard of umpiring (they can hear these and it only increases their nervousness and makes matters worse).  No one is to approach an umpire, the only person that can is the Captain/Coach in a break and only for rule clarification. 


Please be careful where you choose to park. The Council can and do enforce parking restrictions on the roads around the venue. In particular we recommend not parking on cycle lanes or other restricted areas.

There is alternative parking in streets off Rosedale Road west off the lights at the junction with Bush Road. There is also a cut through from Brigham Young Street towards Pinehurst School which could be used when parking in surrounding streets.
