About Us

Blackheath Cricket Club was established on March 29, 1890, making it the oldest running Cricket Club in the Blue Mountains Cricket Association. During this time the club has recorded many premierships and also some historic moments, like the game that Don Bradman played for Blackheath against Lithgow, in 1931, to commemorate the opening of the new concrete wicket. In this game, which NSW state player Wendell Bill also played in, Don Bradman scored 100 runs off just three eight ball overs.

In the early 40s, Blackheath was captained by Ernest Toshank, who went on to play in the ‘Invincibles’, captained by Don Bradman, in the late 40s.

In the early 90s, a junior that played for Blackheath, Darren Reeves, went on to play for the Australian under 19s side.

PRESENT DAY:

In the 2018/19 season, Blackheath has entered two senior and one junior side into the BMCA competition.

We have a grading commitee, which makes sure players are put into teams according to cricketing ability. We have accredited coaches with full coaching qualifications. We cater for ages 8 and up, male and female players, (female players are MORE than welcome at Blackheath Cricket Club).

Some of our highlights from previous years

2nd Grade – Captained by Nathan Fullerton. They had a really good year. Minor premiership and Premiership .

3rd Grade – Captained by Mark McGrath. They also had a really good year. Minor premiership and Premiership .

To this day, Blackheath strives to play the game of cricket within the rules, fairly and competitively,  with good sportsmanship and always with a bit of fun.

Look, More Trivia: Did you know, Blackheath oval was not always where it is today. There was a ground on the western side of the railway that was used. The present ground was dedicated in 1888 as Blackheath Park. It was cleared and fenced in the early 1890s.
