ABOUT KAREN ROLTON OVAL
Karen Rolton Oval is located in Narnungga (Park 25), meaning ‘native pine place’, in the west park lands on the fringe of the city. The precinct has recently undergone a multi-million dollar re-development with a new multi-purpose sports pavilion, improved cricket and football fields, a floodlit beach sports facility, a youth recreation precinct, barbeque facilities, and new car parking.
Within the Karen Rolton Oval Pavilion there are six new change rooms, player’s viewing areas, official’s rooms at the lower level and, on the second level, a place for the community to watch the games in a club room environment.
The Oval is named after one of Australia’s most celebrated cricketers, Karen Rolton – a four-time winner of the Australian International Woman Cricket of the Year and a member of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame and the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame. Karen Rolton Oval hosted its first first-class match in March 2019, and has hosted a Women’s One Day International, and Sheffield Shield matches.
Karen Rolton Oval will host five ICC Women's T20 World Cup warm-up matches from February 16-19 with hosts Australia taking on South Africa on February 18. Adelaide Oval will host ICC Men's T20 World Cup matches scheduled from November 1 2020. Tickets to both tournaments are one sale now!
