Cricket – Auckland Park
Built in 1962, the Club’s cricket oval is nestled amid Auckland Park’s sweeping greenery and large oak trees. The cricket season runs from September to early April and offers members a competitive yet informal way of connecting with fellow lovers of the game. The Club’s two representative teams, the Goblins and the Staggerers, play regular social games throughout the season and annual highlights include national tours and a competitive match against the highly esteemed “Oppenheimer XI”.
Cricket nets are available at both Auckland Park and Woodmead and are frequently used by the youth of the club.
Several children’s clinics are hosted throughout the cricket season. These clinics include various coaching techniques, outdoor activities and a chance for the kids to have some fun and make some new friends. Consult the monthly newsletter for details.
For corporate events, cricket days are extremely popular and are an excellent activity for company teambuilding. Alternatively, members can arrange their own private cricket match with family and friends which makes for a wonderful and relaxing day out.
