Thu, 1 Mar 2018

Due to the present wet and snowy condition of our sports pitches and with further heavy snow forecasted for today and the remainder of the week ahead it is regrettable but we are unfortunately having to make the decision to close all our grass sports pitches for this coming weekend of 3rd and 4th March 2018.

 

The present conditions will not allow the teams to carry out any marking out or maintenance works in preparation of this weekends fixtures.

 

Therefore, it would be appreciated if can you please issue a press release based upon the following:-

 

‘Due to the already wet and snow covered condition of our grass sports pitches and with further heavy snow forecasted for the weekend it is regrettable that a decision has had to be made to close all Bradford Council grass sports pitches for this coming weekend of the 3rd and 4th March 2018. This is the first such closure the council has had to make this season and we are hopeful that fixtures will be back to normal for the following weekend’.
