Joe McAleer Oval named Cricket NSW Ground of the Year

03 May 2017

Blacktown’s Joe McAleer Oval has been named Cricket NSW 2016 Ground of the Year.

The award recognises excellence by curators in the preparation and maintenance of the cricket wicket during the season. 

Joe McAleer Oval is 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.

Mayor of Blacktown City is thrilled the team have been recognised. “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,” continued Mayor Bali.

“The Cricket NSW award tops of a fantastic season of cricket in Blacktown. Blacktown International Sportspark Sydney is proud to have hosted all of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) Sydney Thunder home games and 5 international cricket teams.”

“We are also becoming a sought after training venue, with international teams choosing to prepare for matches in Blacktown. It was a pleasure to meet with Bangladesh Coach, Chandika Hathurusingha, who had nothing but praise for the first class facilities and the excellent grounds team from the Sportspark,” finished Mayor Bali.
