Sporting facilities and councils

Port Stephens is the perfect place to play sport, with excellent facilities and a great climate year-round.

We are committed to providing high-quality sporting facilities for our local community as well as bringing sporting teams and events to the area.

There are 4 local sports councils in Port Stephens. We work closely with NSW Sport and Recreation to encourage our community to use sport and recreation to improve their wellbeing.

Sports field status

Clubs must assess the fields using the Work, Health and Safety Checklist (PDF 117KB) prior to play.

Council determines oval closures Monday to Friday. Sporting clubs can reopen fields on a weekend if the conditions have improved — so long as the grounds are safe for play and play will not damage the field surface.

Please check with your local sporting association to find out about weekend closures.
