Rain Policy for Acton - Boxborough playing fields. If the ground is saturated or there is standing water on the field then it is not open, saturation is when you step on the field and water seeps up into your footprint, like a sponge. If this is the case, please stay off the field.

 

PLEASE NOTE: This Web page will NOT be updated daily. See the ABYS Facebook feed.
