Wet Weather & Extreme Heat Contacts

The following text is from the MCA web site:

The MCA is committed to getting games played each week.

Our policy is if in doubt, turn up. If you have big doubts, call the MCA Wet Weather line:

1900 939 238 after 10:00 AM on match days (44c/min, higher from mobiles & payphones).

The advice may be for players and umpires to report to grounds, or that the match has been rescheduled, relocated or abandoned.

If no pitch has been prepared at their ground, clubs are required to SMS the Match Secretary Alec Kahn 0410 938 191 by 8 AM on match days.


If wet weather is an issue, captains should check the MCA website or Info Line just after 8.15am on match day. They might be asked to inspect the ground (or have a representative do so) at 9am and SMS the Match Secretary by 9.30am on 0410 938 191 with their opinion on abandoning play or delaying the start. Agreement with the other captain is not necessary.
