The training nets located at Banyule Cricket Club are proposed to be modified to improve safety and extend the playing surface. This will aid the use of this resource, not only for the cricket club but will provide a surface for the football clubs and the community. The cricket club has many junior players, all varying in age and abilities. The current net structure does not adequately protect players from ball strike during training. Players and coaches are not in a position to see balls struck from other nets and rely on vocal warnings from other participants to prevent injury.

With over 320 players ranging in age from 5 - 60, mums, dads and children along with locals that wander down for a hit of cricket, the Banyule Cricket Club training nets are a busy place every day of the week! This extension will also provide a hard surface during the wetter months for the well patronised junior and senior football clubs that share these facilities. Added to this the cricket club has grown by over 50% in the last four years! With the varying age of participants training together, the need for safer training nets is essential.

It’s a great club who’s nets are falling behind in comparison to the rest of the DVCA. Would be great for safety and help the club with developing its players to be competitive!

Banyule CC is in the heart of the Banyule council. this would make a huge difference or the safety and wellbeing of all junior and senior players and members, and also the general public you love to walk around in the beautiful parklands.

The upgrade is critical for the safety of BCC seniors and juniors training throughout the week; the opposition, who use the nets to warm up on game day; and importantly , the general public, who use the facilities to play cricket with family and friends.
