Wet Weather



The MCA is committed to getting games played each week.


Our policy is if in doubt, turn up. If you have big doubts, check the MCA website, or call the MCA Info Line after 10:00 AM on match days on 1900 939 238  (44c/min, higher from mobiles & payphones). 

The advice may be for players and umpires to report to grounds, or that the match has been rescheduled, relocated or abandoned. 


If no pitch has been prepared at their ground, clubs are required to SMS the Match Secretary Alec Kahn 
0410 938 191  by 8 AM on match days 


If wet weather is an issue, captains should check the MCA website or Info Line just after 8.15am on match day. They might be asked to inspect the ground (or have a representative do so) at 9am and SMS the Match Secretary by 9.30am on 0410 938 191 with their opinion on abandoning play or delaying the start. Agreement with the other captain is not necessary.




If the pitch is prepared, but in the opinion of the home side will be unfit for play, then the home side is required to contact Alec Kahn, and only with the agreement of the opposition captain can the game be called off.
