The South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) is committed to developing high quality facilities that provide a welcoming environment for all players, officials volunteers and fans.
As part of SACA’s increase in investment in community cricket infrastructure, SACA is offering the opportunity for schools and Councils to receive a grant to install a new cricket pitch (hard wicket) on one of its ovals or open spaces.
Who can apply?
The grant is open to all schools and Councils in South Australia, acknowledging the important role our school ovals or unused spaces play in providing and maintaining facilities.
How much does a new cricket pitch cost?
The exact cost of a cricket pitch depends on a number of variables. Generally, a typical new cricket pitch costs in the vicinity of $20,000. This includes excavation, concrete, synthetic grass, line marking and rehabilitation of the lawn.
When and how to apply?
Applications are NOW OPEN for our Places to Play program.
