Christchurch sports fields are well used by clubs. Once seasonal club allocations have been made, some fields may be booked on a casual basis. 

You can find out about casual summer availability in October and winter in April.

Book a sports field

If your team is affiliated to a regional sports organisation, you can request ground space through them.

Booking fees apply.
