The Parks Committee of the Brisbane City Council yesterday allocated parks and reserves in the Brisbane metropolitan area for winter sports. The rentals charged are the same as for the previous year. The associations and clubs occupy- ing the grounds in previous seasons which have reapplied have been given prefer- ence. Where application has not been made the request of the local club has been favoured. The Queensland Football Association (Soccer) and the Women's Hockey Association did not apply for the grounds formerly used by them, and consequently the council has a number of grounds not allotted.
