Based in the lakeside suburb of Kingston, Eastlake Cricket Club (Eastlake) was established in 1922 and draws junior players predominantly from the Inner South and Woden Valley but we do have players from all over Canberra.
Eastlake is widely known and respected for its positive attitude. It has well-established values that align strongly with being a family-based Club. The Eastlake Way is further explained here. The club has experienced a strong increase in registrations over the last few seasons – a clear reflection of our welcoming approach to new players and families.
Eastlake is also a successful Club with a strong community of volunteers that aim to improve the technical ability of players as well as playing as a team.
- In 2016-17 Eastlake came second in the ACT Junior Club Championship.
- In 2017-18 for the first time in the Club’s history, Eastlake won The Speaker's Shield for Champion Junior Club in the ACT Junior Cricket.
- In 2018-19 Eastlake won a record 4 premierships in the junior competition.
- In 2019-20 Eastlake won premierships in Under 18 Div 2 T20, Under 15 Div 2 T20 and Under 11 Division 1. Ethan Golder from the Under 11 Div 1 side won ACT junior cricketer of the year and we also won several ACT cricketer of the week awards.
Eastlake offers a wide range of junior cricket options – from the Blasters program through to the Under 10-16s open grades and the Eastlake Spirit program for girls. Junior players have the option of trialing for a Div1 team in the open competition or playing in the ungraded competitions in each age group. In our ungraded teams, the club supports and encourages junior players to nominate friends they want to play with in forming teams for the season.
Eastlake usually conducts its Division 1 trials in late August/early September. This allows plenty of time to practice and gel in time for an October start to the season.
We accept players throughout the season, although early registration is always recommended.
