Cricket NSW to develop multi-purpose indoor sport centre for Orange

Cricket NSW to develop multi-purpose indoor sport centre for Orange
November 11, 2016

Orange will become a centre of cricketing excellence with the development of a new indoor cricket and community centre as a result of a partnership between the NSW Government, Orange City Council and Cricket NSW.

The new facility, to be built at Orange’s Wade Park, is backed by $1 million Government from the NSW Government’s ClubGRANTS scheme that supports local communities, with the rest of the funding coming from Cricket NSW, Cricket Australia and Orange City Council, as well as a previous $50,000 grant from the NSW Government.

The project is part of Cricket NSW’s Cricket and Community Centre strategy to develop 26 first-class quality indoor training facilities at key cricket locations across NSW.

Orange is one of 12 priority locations identified across regional NSW for these facilities.

Currently, Orange does not have indoor cricket facilities and cricketers have limited access to training facilities during the winter months.

The centre will include a high-performance cricket area with training lanes for junior and senior cricketers and monitors for video playback to assist training.

There will be multi-purpose indoors sports courts and the modular community centre will include change rooms, male, female and disabled amenities, office space for sporting administrators, canteen area, classroom/meeting room, gym and outdoor seating area.

The project is expected to be completed in 2017.

Commenting on the development, NSW Deputy Premier Troy Grant stated “the NSW Government is very proud to give our current and next generation of cricketers a training facility that will give them every chance of a crack at wearing the baggy green.’’

“That’s not all - this centre will provide netball and soccer facilities and a community centre that will be an attraction for all of Orange.’’

Cricket NSW Chief Executive Andrew Jones added “the Orange facility will serve as a centre of excellence for the local cricket community and representative teams all year round.”
