Christ Church has a proud tradition of playing cricket, regularly finishing among the top three schools in the Darlot Cup, winning the competition most recently in 2017.

Boys train at Christ Church and play matches at the School’s Mt Claremont playing fields.

Christ Church’s Director of Cricket is Graeme Wood, the acclaimed former Australian cricketer and the former coach of the Australian and South African national cricket teams. Graeme also runs a cricket academy, which is based at Christ Church.

Old boy Ashton Turner (Class of 2010), who made his first-class debut for Australia in 2013 and plays for the Perth Scorchers and Western Warriors, also is on hand to assist players.

Tours to eastern state capitals and overseas to England and Sri Lanka are regular features of the program.
