A sport popular with players of all ages, Indoor Cricket has grown over the years to become one of Australia's most popular ways to meet people, exercise and have fun! 

Captains please note: 

* We play on most public holidays however we will close for two weeks over the Christmas period.

* It is the captains’ responsibility to ensure game fees are paid & are up to date.

* It is only the captain who can approach an umpire for clarification of a rule or call; this is to be done at an appropriate time during the game.  No abuse towards umpires, staff or other players will be tolerated.

* All forfeits attract a forfeit fee.



Teams who let us know before the draw is done, incur no forfeit fee.

Teams who forfeit 4-6 days before their game incur a half fee of $50.

Teams who forfeit 3-1 day before their game incur a full fee of $100.

Teams who forfeit on the day incur a double fee of $200.

The Basics of Indoor Cricket 

For those who have never played before, the basics of Indoor Cricket are: 

  • 8 players per team 

  • Teams may still take the court with a minimum of 6 players, though
    their opponents get to choose which player(s) bat and bowl in the
    missing players place 

  • Each innings consists of 16 x 6 ball overs, with every player bowling
    2 overs and each batting pair facing 4 overs 

  • Batsmen score runs by running between wickets but also gain bonus
    runs of between 1 and 6 for hitting certain nets

  • When a batsman is 'out' he loses 5 runs from his score but remains
    in bat 

  • Teams also earn bonus ladder points or 'skins' by winning each
    corresponding batting partnership (i.e. 1st pair of Team A versus
    1st pair of Team B, etc)

  • The only equipment players need is a bat, gloves and protector and
    all of these can be either purchased or

  • borrowed from Bundaberg Indoor Sports Centre (See further down)

  • Matches last approximately 1 hr 15 minutes (30 - 35 minutes/innings) 

If a team does forfeit, management will endeavour to arrange an alternative team for the team to play, either in the same division or a different one. 


Here at Bundaberg Indoor Sports Centre, we do not enforce strict uniform policy. Therefor all indoor cricket players are free to wear any sporting clothing that they choose. Please note though that Bundaberg Indoor Sports Centre also hands out an award for best dressed team at the end of the season. 

Current Holder: Coral Coast Ford 


All teams play a 21 week regular season not including semi finals and finals.

Please note: Each season commences immediately after the previous one. Finals are broken down over two weeks of Preliminary and Semifinals before our Final Day for each Grade. Both Divisions will be broken down into Grades for Finals. 


Teams have the option of paying for the entire season up-front rather than paying each week.

Teams who choose this option receive a 10% discount on the total season's fees and you will never

need to worry about collecting fees from your team mates.

From the new season, we will be using Burley Low Impact Cricket Balls. Burley is the ONLY Indoor Ball officially endorsed by Cricket Australia! Burley Super Soft is also officially endorsed by the World Indoor Cricket Federation for use in International Matches, as well as all National League Matches in Australia.

Players play at their own risk - we recommend players obtain personal injury insurance
