Greg Chappell Cricket Centre (GCCC) is the largest specialist retailer of cricket gear in Australia and arguably the world. The network of GCCC stores and extensive mail-order stocks started from humble beginnings in 1973. Now, 47 years later, there are nine Greg Chappell Cricket Centres across QLD, VIC, NSW, ACT, TAS and SA.
Their Canberra store is located at 20 Collie Street in Fyshwick and is open 7 days a week. Visit their website for full details.
For GCCC Managing Director Greg Tibbits, this partnership is a natural extension of the 10+ years that they have dedicated to supporting cricket in the ACT region.
Tibbits said, “Greg Chappell Cricket Centre knows and understands that nurturing grassroots cricket in Australia is vital for the well-being of the sport into the future. Many club, state and international players were first kitted out at a GCCC store when starting as juniors and still to this day call on GCCC as their go-to when in need of cricket gear.”
Greg Chappell Cricket Centre is home of Kookaburra Cricket Balls. Purchasing a Cricket ACT stamped ball from GCCC will provide a rebate to Cricket ACT or a local club. To secure the rebate, shoppers at GCCC simply need to state which club they play for within Cricket ACT competitions.
Cricket ACT General Manager of Commercial and Operations, Matthew Phelps, stated “Greg Chappell Cricket Centre has provided our clubs with excellent, competitive prices for Kookaburra cricket balls and equipment so we’d enjoy seeing our community take advantage.”
Both Cricket ACT and GCCC have a common goal of supporting grassroots cricket in the ACT. Phelps continued, “This collaboration was a clear win-win as both organisations are passionate about helping young cricketers grow and develop while playing the sport they love. This unified approach between GCCC and Cricket ACT bodes well for the future of cricketers in the ACT.”
In addition to supporting local clubs, GCCC will also be a supporting partner for Cricket ACT’s ACTive Academy.
Tibbits concluded, “For nearly 50 years the GCCC brand has been synonymous with quality, the biggest cricket brands and the best service. We’ve seen generations of players grow from beginners into some of the best the world has seen. We will be here well into the future to see today’s junior cricketers become the next international stars.”
