Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club (Waverley) Incorporated (ESCC) has been a community cricket club since 1894. In that time is has been of service to thousands of families both in the Eastern Suburbs area and beyond.

In their life’s journey thousands of young men and women have passed though Waverley Oval, its coaching classes and extensive junior competition. While some have gone on to represent the district and beyond, all have benefited from the mentoring provided by the coaches and senior players from the club.

It is not trite to say that lifetime friendships have been forged at Waverley Oval, something that will continue as long as cricket remains our premier summer sport and is played at Waverley Oval.

Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club is constantly evolving and expanding. It continues as a major force in the Sydney Grade Cricket competition and provides a nursery for players at inter district, state and national level.



To achieve excellence on and off the field through effective execution, communication, professionalism and accountability. Our vision and strategy pledges to:

  • Modernise the club’s governance
  • Improve ESCC’s financial status, including increasing sponsorship
  • Forge a greater connection within the local community and past players
  • Lift the profile of the club
  • Work in consultation with the club’s coaches to develop successful retention and recruitment strategies
  • Continue to grow and develop our junior programs


The simple mantra for the ESCC Management Comittee will be that of Communication, Accountability & Transparency.
