A round of applause for Cricket Australia for their recognition of community cricket and increasing investment in club facilities. insideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning is proud to have played its part in helping provide the evidence and justification for this investment.
Last year Cricket Australia conducted their first national audit of community cricket facilities using Sports Facility Auditor assessing 7,100 ovals, 3,500 practice facilities and 3,000 changerooms. The audit has led to state infrastructure strategies being developed by insideEDGE in Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia.
Belinda Clark, the former World Cup-winning Australian Women's Cricket Team captain and CA's Executive General Manager of Community Cricket, said the investment would support the governing body's vision "to create the best participation experiences with a focus on growing junior cricket". Cricket Australia have identified that an extra 270 community cricket facility projects will be targeted annually over the next three years thanks to the additional funding.
