National praise for Gepps Cross cricket nets project

National praise for Gepps Cross cricket nets project

Training facility a drawcard for local talent too

The Enfield United Community Cricket Club in Adelaide’s inner north has won national recognition for its new cricket nets training facility.

The Gepps Cross Reserve project features three hard-wicket pitches, retractable nets and its own power supply.

It cost $85,000 in total, with the Office for Recreation and Sport putting in $25,000 (under Round 41 of the Active Club Program) to help cover the bill.

The facility has been in use for a year now – and boy has it got plenty of use!

The Enfield club says attendance at training has jumped since the project was finished. The new nets have also cleared the way for more regular training sessions at the Reserve, meaning there’s more business going through the clubrooms.

All up, that’s keeping the Enfield club in a very healthy state financially, and in terms of its membership.

Earlier this year the nets garnered national recognition, earning a nomination in Cricket Australia’s “A Sport For All” Community Cricket Awards - the nets made it all the way through to the finals in the Community Facility Project of the Year category!
