Who Are We?

Founded in 2006, the Burleigh Cricket Club is the newest addition to the Cricket Gold Coast competition.

In the 2011/12 season Burleigh won the 2nd Grade Premiership in such convincing fashion that it was invited to participate in the Cricket Gold Coast’s exclusive 1st Grade competition the following season, which sees the best twelve clubs from across the Gold Coast region compete for the Kookaburra Cup.

In the club’s first ever season in 1st Grade, the Bullshark’s finished a very respectable 5th to narrowly miss out on a finals berth. The club has continued to evolve and develop, whilst maintaining its Kookaburra Cup status and the outlook for the 2017/18 season looks highly promising with the club bolstering its senior playing ranks with a number of key recruitments as it again looks to push for a finals berth.

Where Are We Located?

Minutes away from the world famous Burleigh Beach, our home ground Avid Concrete Oval (John Handley Oval) is overlooked by the brand-new, modern, $4.5 million Burleigh Sports Club.

The ground itself features 5 turf wickets and is fully-lit, while our training facilities, on the opposite side of the oval to the Sports Club, consist of 4 fully-lit synthetic training nets recently outfitted with quick-dry sports flooring, as well as quality, just-upgraded dressing sheds, canteen and shaded pavilion with plenty of parking around the ground.

The Vision

In 2020 Burleigh Cricket Club will be a combined junior and senior cricket club successfully fielding teams in competitions run by Cricket Gold Coast. The development pathway from junior to senior players will be well established as will the pathway from local to representative level through to the Gold Coast Dolphins Cricket Club.

Financially, the club will have a strong liquid balance sheet, with adequate capital reserves to allow it meet any and all financial obligations, including full cost of the replacement of any asset, when and where they fall due or become necessary. The club will always aim to run within its projected cash-flow budget and as a minimum will break even at the end of each financial year.

The club will have a dual purpose club house shared with the Burleigh Bombers AFL Club which will be established and operating under an equal use of rights agreement.

The club will build a strong presence within the local community based on its core values and promote strong member involvement in day to day operations through a willing volunteer workforce and opportunities to assist in club matters.
