Victorian Blind Cricket Association
The game of cricket is a version of the mainstream game which has been adapted so that it can be played by blind and partially sighted players. The pitch measures the same length and width as the one used in sighted cricket.
The current ball used is made of white plastic with metal washers inside to give the ball an audible sound when bowled or thrown. All bowling is underarm.
A team consists of 12 players of which four are totally blind and 8 are partially sighted. The rules have been modified to allow full participation by all players in the game.
All ages are welcome.
The season runs from October to February (followed by the Grand Final on the first weekend in March).
The Victorian Blind Cricket Association is located in the Charlie Bradley Pavilion, at the rear of 454 Glenferrie Road, Kooyong VIC 3144 (opposite Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club).
Tram – Catch the number 16 tram to Stop 66. Train – Catch the train to Kooyong Station on the Glen Waverley Line.
The grounds are located at the rear of the Vision Australia building.
Parking: Ample parking is available within the Kooyong Park precinct.
