Construction of the five-lane indoor cricket training centre at Jubilee Park is nearing completion!

The facility, proposed to be named Maroondah Edge, has entered the internal fit out stage of the project, with fittings and fixtures currently being installed.

Overlooking the Premier Grade Russell Lucas Oval in the Jubilee Park sporting precinct, the centre will be one of four indoor cricket training hubs in the Melbourne metropolitan area, and a one-of-a-kind facility in the Eastern Region.

Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Rob Steane, said the new centre will add significantly to Jubilee Park’s sporting and leisure precinct.

“We are excited to see the indoor cricket training centre at Jubilee Park nearing completion,” Cr Steane said.

“This new facility is set to be a fantastic addition to the range of sporting and leisure facilities we have at Jubilee Park, which includes facilities for local cricket, football, tennis, soccer, and croquet, along with children’s playgrounds and of course Aquanation.”

Once complete, the facility will boast five lanes for indoor cricket training and will become a regional women’s centre of excellence for cricket, as well as being used by the premier grade Ringwood Cricket Club, Cricket Victoria and the Ringwood District Cricket Association (RDCA).

The state-of-the-art facility will continue to further raise the profile of women’s cricket in Victoria, and the outer eastern suburbs of Maroondah.

The building will be fully accessible for all users, with a Changing Places bathroom to also be constructed adjacent to the facility.

Expected to be completed by May/June this year, the facility will be a welcome addition to Jubilee Park sporting precinct.

This project has been funded by Maroondah City Council in partnership with the Victorian Government.
