This project is fundraising for infrastructure to deliver expansion in both boys and girls community club cricket at Northern Suburbs District Cricket Club.
Norths is one of Queensland’s oldest Premier Grade Cricket Clubs established in 1927. Norths has 148 senior players and is directly affiliated with Wilston Norths Juniors that has over 700 members. In season over 40 junior teams access the club facilities on a weekly basis for training.
Funding donated to this initiative will contribute to infrastructure and facilities development at NSDCC to make the club more welcoming for all our current members and volunteers, our future members and volunteers, and our broader Northside community.
Without a club house and universal change rooms we are currently restricted in our ability to deliver great experiences for our players and our volunteers, and, it is a deterrent to the growth in our female cricket programs.
Encouraging and welcoming more boys and girls, men and women to NSDCC through the development of quality off-field facilities will enhance our culture, strengthen our club and help to get more people playing cricket at our club.
National Cricket Campus
NSDCC is partnering with Cricket Australia and Queensland Cricket to bring to life a vision to create a National Cricket Campus to develop high quality adaptable players for Australian Cricket that inspire, unite and engage with the Australian community right here in Brisbane.
The proposed National Cricket Campus will be Australia’s leading integrated high performance and community cricket facility. It represents the full integration of the existing Bupa National Cricket Centre and Allan Border Field and Ray Lindwall training ovals with the development of new and upgraded cricket facilities at NSDCC.
Through the development of NSDCC’s facilities as part of the Campus, Norths will become a leading example of how a significant community cricket asset aligns with the Australian Cricket
Pathway. The Campus will provide the flexible facilities required to both host high performance programs and events and grow cricket participation in our junior boys and girls in community club competition.
