Facilities and Infrastructure

Cricket Australia’s Community Cricket Facility Guidelines aim to provide a consolidated resource of community cricket facility planning, development, management and maintenance information for use by community, government and national cricket industry partners and stakeholders.

They have been produced by Cricket Australia with support from insideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning, and a Project Steering Group consisting of state and national cricket partners, state and local government representatives, designers and product industry professionals.

The Guidelines represent an important part of Cricket Australia’s investment into community cricket, with facilities being recognised as one of the key pillars in supporting the growth of cricket participation and improving participant and fan experiences.

Information provided within the Guidelines represent a national view of community cricket facilities across the country. While research and care has been taken in their preparation, there are likely to be state or local considerations that are unique to specific areas. In all instances where unique considerations are relevant, these and other associated local conditions, rules or regulations should be referenced prior to embarking on any facility related project.

Please Note: Section 2, Guidance Note 04 ‘Floodlighting’ of the Community Cricket Facility Guidelines is now superseded by Cricket Australia’s Cricket Lighting Guidance Note. Included within the note are also some examples of cricket competitions (and training) for each class of lighting.

The note has been designed to assist clubs, associations, councils and venue managers during the initial planning of a cricket lighting project, in particular the identification of what level of lighting is required for varying levels of competition or training.
