Cricket NSW has begun an exciting new chapter in its long and proud history by moving to Sydney Olympic Park.
After 22 years as part of the Moore Park sporting precinct adjoining the Sydney Cricket Ground, Cricket NSW has moved into recently renovated office and training facilities at 6 Herb Elliott Ave.
Cricket NSW Chief Executive Lee Germon said, “This is an exciting new era in NSW cricket which will soon benefit not only our elite players but also thousands of club and community cricketers throughout Sydney and across the state.
“The Moore Park indoor centre was used by 35,000 club and community cricketers each year and we expect more to be able to share our new complex once it is completed in 2022.”
Mr Germon said that Cricket NSW had outgrown its Moore Park facilities,“Inside a decade we have gone from two teams, the NSW Blues and Breakers, to six fully professional sides with the Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder Big Bash and Women’s Big Bash teams.”
This will be the Cricket NSW home for the next three years while a new $50 million state of the art administration, high performance and community facility is built on the north side of the Olympic Park precinct along the Parramatta River.
