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.

If you would like to know more about the Leichhardt Community Mens Shed, head to their website:

The Cricketers’ Club of New South Wales ( 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”
