Community Cricket Facility Guidelines

Completed: 2015

Client: Cricket Australia

The Cricket Australia Community Cricket Facility Guidelines aim to align national cricket facility, infrastructure planning and development objectives with government, community and industry partners.

They provide a consolidated resource of community cricket facility planning, development, management and maintenance information and have been produced by insideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning, with support from 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.
