Cricket ACT is pleased to announce that Greg Chappell Cricket Centre (GCCC) has signed a two-year partnership extension and will take on the naming rights for all local Twenty20 competitions.

With much-anticipated excitement that Canberra is out of lockdown and local cricket is less than one month away, it’s time to start preparing for the upcoming cricket season and refreshing your cricket kit – and GCCC is a perfect place to start.

GCCC is the largest specialist retailer of cricket gear in Australia and has been supporting local cricket in the region for over 10 years.

Cricket ACT General Manager Commercial Matthew Phelps welcomed the commitment of GCCC to further support local cricket in the region.

“The team at GCCC are extremely passionate about the game of cricket, and equally about supporting the community that supports them,” Phelps said.

“This is a partnership made in cricket heaven, with both Cricket ACT and Greg Chappell Cricket Centre uniting with a common goal – to grow and develop grassroots cricket in the ACT.

“We are excited that all local Twenty20 competitions will now proudly display the GCCC name.”

In addition to supporting the shorter format of the game, GCCC have also thrown their support behind the annual junior pre-season tournament, the Kookaburra Cup, which has been postponed to January 2022.

Managing Director of GCCC Greg Tibbits said it had been a tough couple of months for their Canberra-based business, and they were looking forward to re-opening their doors to the Canberra community.

“With all the recent hardships and challenges that come with being in lockdown, it is exciting to see the local season in Canberra only a few weeks away now,” Tibbits said.

“We are committed to helping all levels of cricketers to reach their full potential and we are really proud to partner with Cricket ACT to help achieve this goal.

“Our staff’s knowledge is unsurpassed and we truly want to support you on your cricketing journey. We encourage you to come into our store in Fyshwick and chat to our team and see what we can offer.”

Canberran’s can shop in-store by appointment only from Friday 15 October with their Fyshwick store set to re-open from Friday 29th October in line with the ACT Government’s pathway forward plan.

 

Greg Chappell Cricket Centre is also home to Kookaburra Cricket Balls, with all Cricket ACT stamped balls purchased from GCCC providing a rebate to either Cricket ACT or a local club.

Shoppers simply need to state which club or association they represent when purchasing.

Fixtures for all GCCC T20 competitions will be available in the coming weeks.
