About The Bay

The Runaway Bay Cricket Club one of the proudest cricket clubs on the Gold Coast.

From its humble beginings at Paradise Point in 1977, the club has gone on to become one of the strongest in the the Gold Coast region.

The club boasts excellent facilities including 4 synthetic training nets with lights, four great grounds, childrens playground, full catering and bar facilities.

With 7 Senior Teams and 5 Junior teams in the Gold Coast Cricket competition this year, and an influx of new club members, we’re well poised to become even stronger this year.

Our club committee is dedicated to making the club as strong as it can be.  Our club numbers are growing, with an influx of new members keen to be trained by and listen to the advice of former Gold Coast Dolphin’s Coach Ross Wallace – a great addition to the Coaching ranks this year.

Our sponsors are held in high regards at the club, with signage throughout the clubhouse itself, and also throughout the grounds of the Cricket Club, and on the website and newsletters.  Sponsorship is important to our club, and if your business can help out, we’d like to hear from you – find out more at our Sponsorship page.

Socially, our club has a proud history of looking after each other.  At the end of a long day’s play, we’ll get together at the club and llsten to each team’s story for that day, how they went, who did well, who didn’t do so well, allowing everyone to keep in touch with what’s going on.

Our juniors are getting stronger and stronger by the year, with 5 teams this year in Under 15s, Under 14s, Under 13s, Under 11s and Under 10s.  Seeing our junior ranks grow is a great thing for the club, showing that we’ve got the depth in our juniors to keep the senior ranks as strong as possible in future years.

This year our club is taking on a new communications edge, with weekly updates to the website, including full draw information, team sheets, latest news and results from the games played that weekend.

Our weekly newsletter The Bay Cricketer is emailed to all reigstered members, allowing all club members to keep in touch with what’s going on with the club, even if they can’t get down to the ground.  If you’re not receiving this great newsletter, Subscribe to the Bay Cricketer by filling out the formo n the right hand side of this page today.
