The Cricketers’ Club of New South Wales home ground is the very attractive tree lined ground at Camperdown Park in Mallett Street, Camperdown. The ground has full facilities including covers, sightscreens, a supersopper, and a new pavilion opened in March 2017, 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”.
Matches are played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. All are on turf wickets with 4-piece balls generally commencing at 1.00pm (sometimes 1.30pm) and are generally 35 overs per side. The season starts the week after the long weekend in October and continues till the end of March and constitutes approximately 20 games.
There is no overall league table and points are not awarded in the C&S “Competition” in non “Jack Pace Shield” games, however, there is a five round pre-Christmas Jack Pace league from which the eight leading teams progress into a three round quarter final, semi final and final competition after Christmas for the “Jack Pace Memorial Shield”. C.C.N.S.W. has won The Shield four times, and made the semi-finals finals in 2021-22.
In addition there is an 8 team T20 Wednesday evening competition at Reg Bartley Oval, Rushcutters Bay. Currently CCNSW does not participate in this.
