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 2017/18 season was a landmark in the club’s history with 1st Grade, 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade all qualifying for finals cricket and it was the only club on the Gold Coast to achieve that feat for the top three grades this season. Whilst 3rd Grade bowed out as minor premiers in the semi-final and 2nd Grade fell narrowly in the Grand Final, 1st Grade achieved the ultimate and won the coveted Kookaburra Cup for the first time in the clubs history thus completing a meteoric rise for the club since its humble beginnings twelve seasons earlier.

The club will be looking for continual improvement into the 2018/19 season by bolstering its senior playing ranks with a number of key recruitments as it begins its defence of the coveted Kookaburra Cup.

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

Into the future, Burleigh Cricket Club will be aim to field successful 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.

The club has identified that the growth of the women’s game and the club would like to be a leader on this front within Gold Coast cricket by offering equal playing opportunities and access to coaching and facilities to female participants.

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.
