Old Ivanhoe Grammarians Cricket Club (OIGCC) was founded in 1989. In its inaugural 1989/90 season the club fielded one side in 5th grade, expanding to two sides for the 1991/92 season. Over the following years the club consolidated its position in the Heidelberg District Cricket Association (HDCA), and built a reputation as one of the most exciting and spirited clubs in the district.
After winning the 2nd grade flag in 03/04, the club was promoted to 1st grade for the 04/05 season. The club enjoyed success over the following years and were premiers in the final season of the HDCA. Following the disbandment of the HDCA, Old Ivanhoe joined the North Metro Cricket Association (NMCA) from the 2012/13 season.
Maintaining close links with Ivanhoe Grammar School (IGS), the Old Ivanhoe Grammarians’ Association (OIGA), and other Old Ivanhoe sporting bodies, OIGCC teams are made up of a dynamic mix of Ivanhoe Grammar old boys, along with players from all parts of the world. Junior training programs and Milo Cricket clinics are also run by the club throughout the season.
OIGCC currently fields two senior sides & two junior sides and warmly welcomes new players, sponsors and supporters down to the Old Ivanhoe Cricket clubrooms at Chelsworth Park.

2017 was a fantastic year for both of the Old Ivanhoe Netball Club teams. The summer season saw ‘OIG lightning’ put forward a serious fight with ‘Megz Team’ in the grand final, with the scores drawn at the final siren. Unfortunately, after a long and hard fight the girls went down in over time. Whilst the whole team put in 110% performance, Rachael Horsford (‘14) shone as Player of the Match. The Winter season closed with another thrilling performance from OIGNC with ‘Storm’ showing excellent skill and determination against Grand Final regulars, ‘Girlz’. The nail biting game ended with Storm going down by 3 points. Congratulations to all players for a stellar performance and Emily Coen (’10) who was awarded Player of the Match. Congratulations and thank you to all the girls on both teams for your determination and support for OIGNC in 2017. A large thank you to Coach Lauren Burge (’09) for all the dedication she put into leading the OIGNC throughout the year. A special mention also to Charlottle Kerr (’10) who despite being on maternity leave, had the club completely organised.
The OIG Water Polo Club is the youngest OIG club established in 2016. However, the OIGWPC have been quite successful in their short time, boasting back to back finals appearances in 2016 & 2017 for both male and female teams, including the 2017 Men’s team premiership. The Club is always eager to have new players down! For more information you can connect with the club via our Facebook page and keep up to date with all the latest news.
