One of the great traditions of Australia is sports after school and work. Whereas other countries do wonderfully with notions of a siesta or other interludes before and after lunch and dinner, the warmer months of Australia's climate offer a great chance, if you're lucky, to leave school or the office while the sun is shining to make it count.

In this regard, Brighton Beach oval is at once special and yet altogether everyday. Sure, there are ovals just like it all around Melbourne, but for those who also aspire to mix in an after school/work swim with a game of kick-to-kick this oval is hard to beat.

This is especially so as there's a number of beaches good beaches nearby without any big reefs or mass of rocks that can spoil an adventurous day out.

For any Australian kid an open field and goals to kick for can be pure summer bliss...

What's more, having undergone refurbishment works in recent years the oval is in solid shape for you to take a screaming mark just outside 50 and run it through for a goal.

On a final note: this is an oval that prides itself on some cheeky precision. With a train line one side and a main road the other, those who do kick goals through the posts come to learn fast there's a skill in kicking high and narrow over into the 5.22 train from the city.

Brighton Beach Oval: a great place to kick around and hone your football fundamentals in Bayside.
