Sporting right of use application

The City manages over 400 sport and recreational facilities across the Gold Coast. Organisations are able to book these facilities under the Right of Use (ROU) program.

To apply for ROU, organisations must complete an application form and lodge it together with a current Certificate of Currency for Public Liability Insurance. Applications are then assessed against the eligibility criteria. Please refer to the terms and conditions. Successful applicants will receive an ROU permit and be required to pay an annual/seasonal fee for ROU which applies to each individual facility required.

Use this online form to apply for right of use.

Right of Use form

Allocations for ROU are on the basis of user needs only, and blanket bookings are not accepted. The sport or activity that is ‘in season’ will take priority, should more than one organisation wish to book the same facility for the same times.
