Having outgrown its home, Sunshine Coast Cricket Association (SCCA) has explored options to move away from its long-time base at Elizabeth Daniels Park.
Sunshine Coast Cricket has been run from its long-time base in Buderim since 1995, and due to the limited space for the growing association, this has led them to relocate to a new home here on the Sunshine Coast.
SCCA has recently begun an exciting chapter in its long and proud history by making this move to the Landsborough Sports Complex – ‘The Big House.’ After 27 years at Elizabeth Daniels Park, the shift to Landsborough could not have come at a better time for SCCA as the relocation has given the association the much-needed space.
SCCA has leased the building, where the association will conduct all administration, meetings, and functions. In addition, the association is hiring out the building for general use to the broader community on a casual or permanent base, which is available for hire all year round. Chris Baker – President of Sunshine Coast Cricket Association – said, “this move will give us a lot of options that we did not have before.”
The move for Sunshine Coast Cricket will separate the association from other clubs, as it is now a stand-alone facility where the association will be based. “We have been planning this move for a while and plan to stay here long-term.” – Chris Baker.
The Landsborough Sports Complex will be the Sunshine Coast Scorcher Women’s new home, where the teams will train and play. The women will experience exceptional training facilities and grounds accessible all year round. The Sunshine Coast Scorchers men will continue to be based at Kerry Emery Oval.
To the range of facilities at the ‘Big House,’ SCCA will run a cricket shop, ‘Save Your Legs Cricket Shop,’ out of the complex. The Cricket Shop will provide players, supporters, and community members a chance to shop locally and for high-quality cricket gear, simultaneously promoting community engagement. This pursuit will generate an extra income for Sunshine Coast Cricket, which will benefit the association and allow them to reinvest in their cricket community and players.Save your legs Cricket Shop is now live online and will have an open day on Saturday 17th September from 9am – 11.30am so get down and support local Cricket.
