NSW Cricket Centre of Excellence

The home of Cricket NSW is moving to Sydney Olympic Park in a state-of-the-art, year-round, training and administration facility to see cricketers excel from grassroots to elite levels.

In partnership with the Australian Government, NSW State Government, Sydney Olympic Park Authority and Cricket Australia, Cricket NSW is moving to a new home built for the needs of current and future generation cricketers at every level, coaches, umpires, administrators and volunteers.

The NSW Cricket Centre will provide contemporary high-performance training and playing facilities for NSW professional teams, including the NSW Breakers, NSW Blues, Women’s and Men’s Sydney Sixers & Sydney Thunder, and CNSW pathway and development programs. A number of facilities will also be available to support the NSW Cricket Community, sport, social, health and educational programs.
