Does anyone know why Parra Council wont allow catch up games to be played at night. Our grounds meet the 100 lux levels and I remember playing cottam cup and PL games at night a few years back. Our Seniors struggle to back up for double headers and it surely isnt good for field recovery playing both Sat & Sun.
I keep asking council but keep getting knock back.
Is this the same with other Councils? I believe Auburn are going through slowly upgrading all grounds to meet 100 lux levels.

holroyd council doesn't seem to have any problems with night game catch-ups. bathurst st 1 was upgraded over the summer and has had a number of midweek catch-ups scheduled this season. unfortunately the rain has stopped most of them actually happening!
Auburn Council is currently upgrading Priness Park, Weeb's Ave and Coleman Park to have 100 lux lighting, once finished we will have 100 lux on all three fields at Coleman so catch up gains midweek shouldn't be an issue, work is expected to be completed in June I believe however again the wet weather is putting a bit of a brake on the work.
