The Tuggeranong Valley Cricket Club Inc. (TVCC) was formed in 1976 with 27 players in the ACT Junior Cricket competition. The Club achieved district Club status in 1984 and entered the ACT grade cricket competition in the 1984-85 season. TVCC won the 1st grade competition for the first time in 1989-90 and their first Junior Club Championship in 1990-91. TVCC now has over 400 players and officials.
Object of the Club
To promote and manage the game of cricket in the Tuggeranong Valley, and to organise appropriate social amenities for the benefit of the people of the district. The Club places special emphasis on player development, with particular attention being given to the transition from juniors to seniors. TVRU & ASC provided valuable support to TVCC in the construction of the clubhouse pavilion facility at Chisholm Sportsground, and continued support in maintenance of the adjacent pitches. The pavilion, which was opened in 2005, has made Chisholm Sportsground a high standard cricket venue for Tuggeranong, and the pavilion is available for hire for functions.
The Club provides the opportunity for Tuggeranong residents to play cricket at senior, junior (Ages 8 to 17), and “In2Cricket” levels. “In2Cricket” is a less formal type of activity designed mainly to promote participation and the development of bat and ball co-ordination skills and provides Have-A-Go (5-8 years) and T20 Blast (8-12 years). Junior competition is fundamentally traditional cricket with modifications to the rules to allow for the age of the participants. Competition teams are provided for both male and female players. The Club plays on turf and synthetic pitches, depending on the type and level of competition involved. The Club normally provides all equipment and management of teams (with parental help in the case of junior and “In2Cricket”), all covered under a single membership fee.
