Applications are now open for the third round of the Victorian Government’s $13.5 million Community Cricket Program.
This round of the program delivers $1.4 million for clubs and councils to develop or redevelop local cricket infrastructure, from training nets through to female friendly and accessible change rooms.
Players at Diggers Rest Recreation Reserve, Doug Dean Recreation Reserve in Delacombe and Linton Recreation Reserve are previous beneficiaries from grants for new nets made under the second round of the program.
The program has also stumped up a new three lane cricket net training facility at AJ Freeman Reserve in Paynesville, refurbished cricket nets at JK Grant Reserve in Altona to include six synthetic cricket pitches and repair works on the oval at St Leonards Lake Reserve in St Leonards.
By helping clubs modernise their facilities, communities have the opportunity to cater for even more people keen to get involved in sports like cricket.
The Community Cricket Program is part of the Victorian Government’s investment of more than $1.1 billion in community sport and active recreation infrastructure since 2014.
Since 2019, the Community Cricket Program has invested more than $2.8 million in 30 cricket infrastructure projects across Victoria. For more information about the Community Cricket Program
