Bye Law Extract 3.4 Grounds

If in the opinion of the umpires at the time fixed for the starting of the match, the ground is in such a condition as to be unfit for play they shall be entitled to declare the match off. At their sole discretion, the umpires may allow a period for a pitch to be made ready for play, but in all such circumstances, the question of the fitness of a pitch for play shall rest solely with the umpires whose decision is final. If in the opinion of both umpires, the pitch is not marked satisfactorily for the game, the match shall be postponed and the venue reversed for the re-fixture.

A match may be abandoned by the umpires if ground or weather conditions make further play is impossible. Any abandoned match will be replayed in full at a later date at the original venue.

Goals must have nets, back boards and side boards and the boards must be dark coloured. If there are no nets the match must be postponed and the venue reversed for the re-fixture.
