Case study: Collaboration helps cricket club grow innings
The Beenleigh Pirates Cricket Club was unsure how to accommodate their growing numbers until a Queensland Government and local council collaboration provided a solution.
While the club had limited space, the school oval next door had perfect facilities for a range of sports, including cricket.
The club worked with Sport and Recreation and Education Queensland in the Queensland Government, as well as the Logan City Council, to build a relationship that benefits the community.
With funding from state and local governments, the school’s oval is now available for the cricket club, and other sporting clubs in the local area, to use.
