Profile

Willowmoore Park, home of Easterns Cricket, was founded by English Miners in 1924 with the name derived from the willow trees that surrounded the ground and the moor that is present at the back of the ground.

One of the new international venues on the South Africa cricketing calendar was also the ground that Denis Compton the famous English cricketer scored 300 runs in 181 minutes in a game between England and North Eastern Transvaal in 1948.

Upgrades to the ground has radically changed its appearance from the old to the modern. A new world class players facility, new seating facilities (capacity now 20,000), a four-story Media Centre, a LED electronic scoreboard and various spectator facility improvements has enhanced the comfort of both players and spectators.

A state of the art new sub-surface and ring drainage has been installed on the playing surface and three additional pitches have been laid to improve consistency.
