With Phase 4 restrictions still in place, there are restrictions on the number of spectators that are permitted within the facility. With the aim of ensuring patron safety, the following rules are currently in place:
For the netball and basketball domestic competitions, only one spectator per player is permitted. Given that domestic competitions run all courts at the same time, this limits the number of spectators that are able to physical distance while watching a domestic game. The calculation is based on the spectator space around the court, which doesn’t include the playing court area.
WABL and SBL competitions
Spectator numbers for WABL and SBL games are only limited by the maximum capacity of the facility based on 2m2 per person. For events such as WABL and SBL game days, the spectator restrictions are based on the overall space required for the booking and therefore an increased number of spectators are permitted to enter the facility.
Please be respectful of these key rules that are currently in place as they are in place to provide the opportunity for centre patrons to attend the facility safely.
Your cooperation to assist with keeping the patrons of Mike Barnett Sports Complex safe while they are at the centre is very much appreciated
Please contact the complex on 9591 0850 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
The Autumn Centre welcomes members back to most of its groups and activities. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 7.15am - 4pm excluding public holidays. As the two square metre rule is still in place, this restricts the number of members able to use our foyer and rooms so we remain open to members only.
Sit down meals in the dining room and food and drink from the café are available. The hairdresser and podiatry service is available and most after-hours classes are operating. For further information please contact the Autumn Centre on 9528 8560.

The Autumn Centre will continue to provide takeaway meals on a pre-paid basis. You may order by attending the centre or by phone. Collection of meals is after 12pm.
The cost is $8 for a main meal and $4 for dessert. Frozen meals remain available from 8am to 3pm Monday to Friday.
Payment via card is encouraged to avoid a further point of contact but cash is accepted if necessary.

We have recommenced our four-yearly physical inspections of swimming pool and spa barriers. Letters will be sent out inviting those residents with barriers that are due for inspection to contact us to make a booking. If you have a virtual inspection booked, one of our Compliance Officers will now attend your property to carry out a site inspection.
The City is committed to ensuring the health and wellbeing of its staff and the community. Compliance officers conducting the inspections will implement physical distancing and other hygiene measures at all inspections. Where access to the pool barrier is available via the side of the house or through a carport or garage, this is preferable.
