Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex

COVID Update July 31, 2020

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the community, the reopening of some City of Greater Sudbury facilities is being postponed for approximately two weeks. That includes the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, which was scheduled to partially reopen on Monday, August 3.

Residents and sports organizations who have ice bookings at Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex over the next two weeks will be contacted by Arenas staff over the coming days. Full refunds will be provided. 

The City will work closely with Public Health Sudbury & Districts to monitor developments over the next two weeks. Based on the results, these facilities could open the week of August 10. An update will be provided prior to that date.

Book it


There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, click here for our Frequently Asked Questions.

 

 

The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
