Blacktown’s Joe McAleer Oval named Cricket NSW 2016 Ground of the Year
Blacktown City Council’s Joe McAleer Oval has been named Cricket NSW 2016 Ground of the Year – an award that recognises excellence by curators in the preparation and maintenance of the cricket wicket during the season.
Blacktown’s only single-purpose first grade cricket oval, ‘Joe Mac’ is home to Blacktown City & District Cricket Association and their first grade cricket club Blacktown Grade Cricket Club.
Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali is thrilled that the Council’s curatorial team have been recognised by Cricket NSW, stating“I would like to commend the entire Grounds Team on their efforts in preparing a high quality playing surface.
“It has been praised by the club, visiting teams, umpires and Cricket NSW alike throughout the season.
“The Cricket NSW award tops of a fantastic season of cricket in Blacktown.”
The past summer also saw the nearby Blacktown International Sportspark Sydney hosted all of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) Sydney Thunder home games and five international cricket teams.
