Local cricket clubs and grounds across the Penrith and Blue Mountains regions are set to benefit from improved facilities and programs, as part of the $1.96 million NSW ICC World T20 Cricket Legacy Fund.

Member for Penrith and Sport Minister Stuart Ayres said the $6 million NSW ICC World T20 Cricket Legacy Fund is especially designed to ensure clubs and players at the grassroots level benefit from the 14 matches to be held in NSW for the ICC World T20 2020 tournaments.

“This fund has been established to inspire the next generation of cricketers by improving the quality and quantity of community facilities and will help attract world class cricket matches right across NSW.

“Right here in our local area we are seeing clubs benefit from infrastructure upgrades that will allow for more playing time which helps participation growth,” Mr Ayres said.

Local clubs benefiting from the program include:

  • $82 700 for Penrith District Cricket Club to upgrade Rance Oval
  • $17 500 for Faulconbridge Cricket Club to install new cricket nets at Tom Hunter Park, Faulconbridge
  • $15 000 for Penrith City Council to install a new concrete synthetic grass wicket at Village Oval, Jordan Springs.

Cricket NSW Chief Executive Officer Andrew Jones said that the NSW ICC World T20 Cricket Legacy Fund will deliver significant benefits for local clubs and councils, helping to maximise the expected growth in participation resulting from hosting the tournament in Australia.

“With more girls and boys, women and men, of all ages playing cricket across NSW than ever, the fund will both support the growth of the sport in local communities and leave a lifelong legacy for one of the biggest sporting events this decade.”
