Inaccessible cricket pitch inbetween two sport fields

When submitting a Wayspot Appeal, make sure to include as much of the following information as possible:

  • Wayspot Title: Murdoch University Artificial Turf Cricket Pitches

  • Location (lat/lon): -32.071944,115.830273

  • City: Murdoch

  • Country: Australia

  • Screenshot of the Rejection Email (do not include your personal information):

  • Additional Information (if any):
    The cricket pitch is located in the middle of the two large sporting fields, you can’t reach it unless you walk through the fenced area and interrupt the games.

I have taken a photo of the area during the day to show where the pitch is located on the field.
This waypoint meets the rejection criteria for Sports Fields since its location does interfere with sporting activity.

(The other POI/waypoints in the area are located outside of the fenced area and don’t obstruct pedestrian access.)

I’m not sure that this needs to be removed so much as it needs to be moved. If the pin was moved south to the bottom of the pitch it would still be accurate and would be accessible.

The wayspot immediately above is also called “ Artificial turf soccer pitches”. Seems one of the two needs to go since they are duplicates.

I wouldn’t recommend moving the waypoint south of the sporting fields.
The southside is surrounded by a treeline that most pedestrians will not use to access this area. (Right side of the 3rd photo is the treeline.)

The whole field is built on an artificial elevation.

It’s a pretty weird situation. We have tons of huge community sports ovals in Australia that tends to get a cricket pitch straight in the middle.

The difference is those are usually double the size, hosting different events and easier to walk across if a match isn’t on.

(There’s one that’s straight right of this pitch on google map for reference.)

Technically, they sometimes can void the criteria. But most times, those aren’t hosting matches back to back. So I guess it’s not being blocked?

Thanks for the appeal @CaratsRitzy After reviewing the additional evidence provided, we’ve decided to retire the Wayspot in question.
