Howzat: Playing Cricket Bayside

Get ready to hit ‘em for six with C&G’s guide to the best places to play cricket in Bayside Melbourne. With the Test Cricket in full batting swing, it’s time to gather the fielders, batters and skippers of your tribe for a good ol’ fashioned game of outdoor cricket. Slap on some sunscreen, pop on your hat and show off your best bowler’s arm at these Bayside cricket pitches:

1. Highett Reserve, Highett

Highett Reserve is known as the home ground to Bayside’s Moorabbin Cricket Club, and is a popular spot for cricketers of all ages. The facility is disability and toddler-friendly, with seats and shade areas accommodating long summer days of cricket.

2.  Dendy Park, Brighton

Newly renovated, the Dendy Park pavilion caters for all the requirements of cricket. With change rooms, referee rooms, first aid and social areas on site, Dendy Park also has free car parking and is popular among competing Bayside cricket clubs.

3.  The North Port Cricket Ground, Port Melbourne

If there’s a cricket pitch to show-off your skills – this is the place! This outdoor cricket stadium is for cricketers who take their game very seriously – and we hear it’s also used as a training ground by several famous AFL players. Who know just which footy star you’ll spy during tea break?

4.  Hurlingham Park, Brighton

If cricket isn’t your favorite sport, Hurlingham Park has something for everyone! An adventure playground for curious kids, BBQ areas for hungry adults and dog ‘off-leash’ ovals for rambunctious pups. And of course, there is enough space for cricketers to run, dive, catch and bowl!

Chisholm & Gamon hopes everyone is enjoying their summer break. Whether you want to talk about the test cricket or the latest Bayside property listings, C&G are just a phone call away. Or better yet, drop by any of our Bayside office for a chat – we already have the coffee brewing!
