Brief History of Indoor Cricket
Indoor Cricket was developed in Perth, Western Australia, in the late 1970's. Graham Monoghan is viewed as the game's pioneer in Australia. In 1979, Hanna and Jones established Indoor Cricket Arenas (ICA), which grew to become a large franchise business. At its heyday in 1980’s, about 400,000 people played the sports every week. Originally it was intended to be a low-cost sport, suitable for cricketers and novices alike and one which could be played year-round.
Effective Monday 9 February 2009, Indoor Cricket become an important part of Cricket Australia's operations. Nowadays, there are more than hundreds Indoor Cricket centres spread throughout Australia in every State and Territory, with more than 200k active participants.
