About Us

Ginninderra Cricket Club is a proud club based in Belconnen ACT, who play in the ACT Cricket premier grade competetion. We have a side representing the club in each of the 5 grades in the nation’s capital city, and strive to be a successful and professional club both on and off the field. We also boast a thriving junior club catering for boys and girls of all ages. We welcome players of all backgrounds, abilities and experience in their cricketing career and strive to cater to the needs of all. We train and play at the Kippax Ovals in Holt, with the recently upgraded Kippax first grade ground establishing itself as the premier grade cricket facility in Canberra.

In recent years the Ginninderra Cricket Club have been blessed to have some highly rated international and first class cricketers play for the club. The highest profile player to have played for the GCC is Ross Taylor, who played a few games for the Tigers before going on to become a world class star for the New Zealand international team. He has since starred in many Test matches and at several World Cup events for his country, establishing himself as one of the premier batsmen on the world stage.

Ginninderra have also been blessed with Papua New Guinea internationals Jack Vare and Assad Vala spending some time with the club and quickly becoming favourites of those within the club. PNG international captain Vare has particularly established himself as a popular “Tiger for life” after several seasons playing for the club, with the hope of more to come in the future. The 2016-2017 saw the inclusion of two PNG squad players to the tigers ranks in Kiplan Doriga and Hiri Hiri Patana both of whom where tremendous influences on the playing squad and club.

Jeremy Bray, James Shannon, and Shane Getkate have also all tasted international cricket having represented Ireland at different levels both before and after spending time playing for Ginninderra.

Added to these international players, Graeme Cunningham (Tasmania), David Dawson (Tasmania and NSW), Mick Delaney (South Australia), and Sam Gaskin (Australia U17’s) have all spent time with Australian first-class state sides or with representative squads.

We’ve also been blessed to have English county cricket stars, Steve O’Shaughnessy (Lancashire and Worcestershire), Scott Elstone (Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire), and Paul Horton (Lancashire and Leicestershire) spend time at our proud club.

On top of this, Ginninderra are proud to have had several players in recent years selected to represent the ACT in the Territory’s Comets side. These players include Graeme Cunningham, David Dawson, Sam Gaskin, Josh Kentwell, Justin Williams, Mick Delaney and Cameron Suidgeest. We’re incredibly proud of Cameron’s efforts in recent seasons, culminating in him being named as the Comet’s representative bowler of the year for season 2015/16.
