The Walgett Ovals Committee on Thursday 11th April to assess the condition of the three (3) Walgett ovals, to gauge whether or not they are suitable for play this season. It was unanimously agreed, there is still some work to be done on both ovals 1 and 2 in the coming weeks (watering, mow, fertilize and sow) , therefore these ovals won’t be ready for play until the 11th May 2019. Training can however, commence immediately on Oval 3 and this is also available for junior games. The Committee has recommended that senior teams both league and union should advise their regional executive that the Walgett ovals 1 and 2 will NOT be suitable for play until Saturday 11th May 2019, and Walgett teams should elect away games until this time. Walgett Shire Council is committed to providing high quality, safe recreational facilities for its community and visiting sporting teams, this next window of opportunity to the 11th May 2019 will allow the grounds to further improve, with increased moisture retention and greater grass cover to some of the more drought affected playing areas.
