We’re excited to have completed the construction of new three lane cricket nets at AR & F Ditterich Reserve in Main Ridge just in time for the warmer weather!
The project is jointly funded by the Shire ($110,000) and the State Government’s Sport and Recreation Victoria's Community Cricket Project ($100,000).
The project saw the removal of the previous cricket nets and building brand new enclosed three lane nets with synthetic grass.
The project was delivered on time and the Main Ridge Cricket Club were able to start using the new nets prior the cricket season kicked off.

Quote attributable to Mayor Councillor Anthony Marsh:
“This upgrade ensures the Main Ridge Cricket Club and the wider community can gain access to modern facilities and can focus on enjoying their game.”
Quote attributable to Red Hill Ward Councillor David Gill:
“Cricketers come from near and far to play at Main Ridge.
“Against all odds this small club has continued to provide games at the most picturesque ground on the Peninsula.
“It is fantastic that improvements to facilities like the nets, oval rehab and permanent changerooms have been completed or are on the agenda.
“For the first time ever change room facilities are now available, portable facilities were set up in February.”
