Sports grounds around the Highlands are on "caution status" due to bad weather.
The weather has soaked sports grounds and created potential hazards.
Wingecarribee Shire Council (WSC) have re-assessed grounds for this weekend's competition and made a decision.

"The sports grounds have been re-assessed and council have made the decision to place a caution status on the grounds, effective as of 14/8/2020," WSC said.
"Please note some spots are still wet, so use extra caution when deciding to use fields.
"The grounds crew will re-assess the situation on Tuesday, August 18 where each Sports Field will be assessed individually."
When grounds are opened it is up to the individual sporting club to make a decision on whether the ground is suitable for play.
"When council has deemed the grounds open with caution/restrictions, council requires clubs (including referees and/or coaches) to make their own assessment as to the suitability of the grounds prior to their use," WSC said.
"Please consider the following:
- The potential for injury to players.
- The sport played and the potential for damage to the playing surface.
- The weather.
- The condition of the ground when inspected.
"If the grounds are assessed as unsuitable for the intended use - they must not be used and their condition reported to council."
