The Drummoyne Oval is a pretty ground which is the home of Sydney Cricket Club, who we watched play in the semi-finals of Sydney’s one-day knockout competition. It also hosts matches for the NSW Women team, the NSW mens team occasionally play here, and the touring England Lions recently hammered a NSW select XI here.
There is a small concrete stand at one end ( the Greg Davis Stand, named after the captain of Australia’s Rugby Union side in the 1960’s who played for the Drummoyne Rugby club, who also play here in the Australian winter ), a small player’s pavilion on one side, a quirky old fashioned small stand with around 250 seats, and then there are grass banks around the rest of the oval.
There are 6 floodlight pylons, TV gantries at both ends, as well as a large scoreboard in the far corner by a very large tree.
When we visited there was a small food & drinks outlet open in the side of the Greg Davis stand, with cans of beer or glasses of wine for 5 AUD, and soft drinks for 3 AUD. There were also what looked to be pies and sausage rolls available.
Entrance to the oval was free for this match, with a small number of people sitting on the grass bank, with everyone else in the Greg Davis stand.
