New Cricket Nets for Community


The Emu Plains Cricket Club (EPCC) has just completed the rebuild of the cricket nets at Leonay Public School. The project, partially funded under the NSW Government Sport and Recreation communities funding grant, improved the safety of the nets and ensured the alignment with the Cricket Australia Outdoor Training Facilities Guidelines. The nets provide a safe training environment for all players and coaches of Emu Plains Cricket Club and will ensure the nets and surrounds are accessible and safe for all users, passers-by and surrounding properties.

EPCC would like to thank Ms Christine Payne (Principal) and the Leonay Public School community for the ongoing access to the nets and trust that all are very pleased with the new nets, which will be utilised by the students of the school as well.

The project could not have been completed without the extremely generous support of Ange Barbaro and Metwest Engineering, who provided the materials and labour to complete the project within budget.

Emu Plains Cricket Club President, Sam Barbaro commented “The Cricket Club is very happy that this project has been completed. The nets are a fantastic community asset and all players of EPCC are very much looking forward to training at the new venue. Thanks to Christine Payne and the school for their support throughout the project”.

Leonay Public School Principal, Ms Christine Payne said “The staff and students of Leonay Public School would like to thank the EPCC for their dedication and support in completing this fantastic project. The new cricket nets are not only a valuable resource for the school but for the whole Leonay and Emu Plains communities”.
