Northern Territory Cricket is the peak cricket body in the NT and we aim to unite, inspire and support all those who love the sport.
The Northern Territory Cricket Association was formed in 1978 and has approximately 2000 members.
Our vision is for "Growing Cricket in the North" giving mind to the unique circumstances we have to offer, including geography, climate and demographics. These specific opportunities will allow us to continue the significant growth and reach of Australia's favourite sport in the north, and heart of Australia.
Many players start their journey in the NT Cricket pathway and continue on to representative opportunities and higher honours. We're incredibly proud of our NT representatives and their achievements which equip and strengthen Australian Cricket.
