|It does rain in summer in Sydney and occasionally councils close grounds. As all councils have their own rules, managers must always check the relevant websites and info lines and then alert their teams. Here’s a useful link: www.nsjca.asn.au/content.aspx?file=8599|16604e
However, always assume cricket is on no matter what the weather looks like unless told otherwise by your manager.
Managers should make contact with opposing managers to make a decision about playing conditions in time to prevent players leaving home. If no decision has been possible, every player must turn up at the ground before the appointed time. Be prepared to stay until the match can start or is called off.
The NSJCA Blue Book covers Wet Weather in detail.
We also play under a strict Hot Weather policy set by the NSJCA. All managers must read and be aware of the policies as player safety is our number one priority.
Please see the NSJCA Blue Book for the relevant policies.
