Mornington Peninsula Shire is excited to be reconstructing the three lane outdoor cricket nets at AR & F Ditterich Reserve in Main Ridge.
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 will involve the removal of the previous cricket nets and building brand new enclosed four lane nets with synthetic grass.
Construction is starting this month and is anticipated to be completed by October 2022. During this time, the existing cricket nets won’t be accessible. Apologies for any inconveniences.

“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 are on the agenda.
“For the first time ever change room facilities are now available, portable facilities were set up in February.”
