How can you help?

Like always, we need volunteers for the Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd June clean up.

  • ▶️Friday morning: Paint lines for set up (min 4-6 people)
  • ▶️Saturday night: Pre-show and post-show clean-up (rubbish & recyclables) - the more volunteers, the quicker it's done!

 

Why volunteer?

Apart form thee obvious - it's a great way to support the Nightcliff Cricket Club and the DSO - you get to see the "Iconic" show! This year's show features hits from legends like Elvis, Aretha, Tina Turner, Adele, AC/DC to Beyoncé. It is always a great performance put on by DSO.

 

Ready to lend a hand?

If you are able to help out, please reach out to one of the committee members to register your interest.

Our club has always prided itself on being inclusive and respectful towards everyone, regardless of background. We believe in fostering a family-friendly atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable participating.

Creating a Safe Space Together

As we welcome and encourage more increased female participation, we want to emphasize the importance of respectful interactions. We aim to increase female membership to 25% of the whole club within 3 years. Creating a respectful and inclusive environment is key to achieving this goal.

As you would have seen advertised, on June 1st at 12:30 PM, we're hosting Ladies' Day! This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the incredible women who are already part of our club, and to welcome even more women to join our vibrant community.

A key to creating a safe space it to ensure we maintain respectful interactions. This at the core of our club's values. Treating all women with courtesy, avoiding anything that could be construed as disrespectful, and actively calling out such behaviour if we see it. By working together, we can create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, including women and girls who are members, volunteers, committee members, or simply visiting our club.

Zero Tolerance for Disrespect

Our club has a zero-tolerance policy for disrespectful behaviour towards women. We will take decisive action, including potential deregistration, to maintain a safe and welcoming environment.

If we all work together, we can build a better, safer, more inclusive, family-friendly club. Let's celebrate this on the our Ladies Day on the 1st June.

Nightcliff Cricket Club's annual Trivia Night is back! Save the date for Saturday, June 8th at the Nightcliff Sports Club.

Get your thinking caps on, gather your smartest mates, and prepare for a night of friendly competition, awesome prizes, and of course, some laughs!

More information about registration and what to expect coming soon. Stay tuned! 

 

Mums are the backbone of our club, cheering us on from the sidelines, taxiing us to countless games and training sessions. We wouldn't be here without your unwavering support.

Today, we celebrate all the Mums who make Nightcliff Cricket Club such a special place. Here's to you!

See you there future Tigers!🐯🏏

Nightcliff Cricket Club (NCC) Announce that we are exploring a future with  University Bulls Cricket Club (UCC). 

Today, we are excited to announce a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the 2024 season has been established with University Bulls Cricket Club, marking the start of a collaborative journey that could lead to a full amalgamation in late 2025. 

This MoU outlines a shared commitment to explore the potential benefits of amalgamating the two Cricket Clubs. While both clubs will maintain their independent identities and memberships in 2024, a key aspect of the MoU is the formation of joint teams across all grades. 

There is a process that needs to be followed before we can provide a full update.  At this stage, all we can share is that the NCC members have been notified of what is being proposed.  We understand the impact of this on the competition and are going through this process as quickly as we can.

We see that this unification will build NCC's on field strength, providing further opportunities to higher grades for current UCC players and offer a glimpse into the potential of a full amalgamation for our members. 

The final decision on the club amalgamation will be made by the members of both cricket clubs through dedicated Special General Meetings to be held later in 2024. We encourage open communication and active participation from our members as we navigate this exciting new chapter. 

Stay tuned for further updates.
