Kookaburra Cup

Played in the lead up to the start of the junior cricket season, the Kookaburra Cup is a staple of the cricket calendar in the region.

The Kookaburra Cup is an annual pre-season tournament attracting players and teams from around the country. The mission of the Cup is to showcase Australia’s number one sport, cricket, to kids and families. The festival vibe of the event has been designed to achieve the two primary goals of participation and enjoyment for all.

In its 19-year history, the Kookaburra Cup has continued to grow, attracting more than 750 participants playing over 200 games in three action packed days.

The T20 tournament is held at multiple venues across Canberra and is open to entries from both boys and girls. The teams have eight players per side, competing in either Cup, Plate or Shield divisions.

This tournament has featured prominent names in the cricket community including Australian representatives Adam Zampa and Nic Maddinson.

The 2023 Kookaburra Cup was held from 4–6 October.

Information about the 2024 Kookaburra Cup will be posted on this page in the coming months.
