Our Story

As a leading cricket club on Sydney's north shore, we were founded in 2004 to be a place where anyone can come and enjoy the great game of cricket. We want you to encourage people of all abilities to participate in this great game we all love.

We compete in the Northern Cricket Union and have teams spanning from 1st Grade to 6th Grade. Our teams play on both turf and synthetic wickets, in 1-day and 2-day matches, on Saturdays through summer.

It doesn't matter if you've been playing top-level cricket or have never picked up a bat and ball - there is a place in our club for everyone who loves the great game of cricket.

Cricket ability optional - sense of humour mandatory!

On field, our players wear a traditional blue cricket cap, full whites including the club sponsored shirts and trousers. When we train, our players wear club training clothes. After the games our social clothing also shows the community and our sponsors who we are, and that we represent ourselves as the strong club that we are.
