Indoor Cricket

Played all year round, Indoor Cricket matches last just over one hour and are played by teams of only six or eight players.

Indoor Cricket is a fun and fast paced form of the game that can be played all year round. The format provides opportunities for skill development in all areas of the game, as well as the chance to play the game with your friends and meet new people.

Depending on the format matches typically last between 45-75 minutes, with anywhere between 4 and 8 people per-side. The ball used is also softer than a standard outdoor cricket ball, reducing the need for protective equipment.

Watch some highlights below:


There are indoor centres right across NSW that offer a range of junior and senior competitions catering for all abilities.
