Dolly, the covers trolley

When you’re next at Camperdown you might notice we have a new club member .

Recently CCNSW commissioned the Leichhardt Community Men’s Shed to build us a new trolley, the team has been working on this project for the past couple of months and was delivered on Friday 17th November.

The trolley is made from high quality steel & in a past life it was in a musical theatre as a frame for equipment. It’s been retrofitted with 4 pneumatic wheels, waterproof marine plywood and has handles for improved accessibility. It’s significantly larger than the previous trolley at 1.8×1.5m, however it also rolls and turns much more easily and is significantly sturdier.

We are extremely grateful to the Men’s Shed for their help with this project which has ultimately saved us several thousand dollars upfront. No doubt the teams will need to adjust their technique to work with the heavy covers and new trolley, but once we have learned the way, benefits will definitely be realised.

The Cricketers’ Club of New South Wales (www.ccnsw.com) plays on excellent turf wickets with full covers at the attractive tree lined ground at Camperdown Oval with a village green atmosphere just off Parramatta Road in Mallet Street. The ground has full facilities including covers, sightscreens, a supersopper, and a new pavilion, which includes an air conditioned canteen, change rooms and showers. Adjoining the ground on one side is a café and on the other side a licensed restaurant called “Camperdown Greens”

C.C.N.S.W. needs to recruit new players for all its teams, particularly younger players in their twenties and thirties for its City and Suburban side.

For those who no longer have the time to play Grade or Shires or attend regular midweek practice, it offers: – some Saturday and some Sunday all-age afternoon cricket in the City and Suburban Competition; Sunday over 40s and over 50s and over 60s cricket in the Sydney Masters Competitions; Sunday, midweek social games and a midweek LMS eight a side T20 competition on Wednesday evenings in the summer and on Sunday mornings in the winter; plus generally at least one winter tour each year. Refer to the ‘Teams’ and ‘Tour page for details

Last season two players, Brett James and Stuart Ridge were selected respectively for the Australian over 50s and over 60s teams and our over 60s won their league.
