Palm Beach Currumbin Cricket Club is located at Salk Oval Palm Beach, on Thrower Drive with access from Sarawak Avenue. It is on the banks of the beautiful Currumbin Creek. PBC Cricket Club was established in 1928 and since that time has been involved in many successful cricket seasons. In 2018 the Club celebrated its 90th Anniversary and recognised the contribution of past and present cricketers and volunteers who have enabled the club to survive and grow to being one of the largest cricket clubs on the Gold Coast.
PBC Cricket Club accommodates Senior players with teams in 1st Grade to 6th Grade and a very competitive Over 40's squad. The Junior Club will be running the Woolworths Cricket Blast program this year, with Junior Blasters (replacing previous MILO in2CRICKET) as well as Master Blasters (replacing Under 10's). As well PBC has teams in all age groups from Under 11's - Under 17's. The Club also has numerous Junior and Senior players each season competing at Representative Level cricket for the Gold Coast region.
2015 saw the completion of the new facilities building housing a canteen, meeting room and modern change rooms together with a wide covered verandah for spectators. Season 2017-2018 saw the laying of a new cricket pitch and the rejuvenation of the Senior Training Nets.
2018-2019 saw the first Palm Beach Junior Cricket Academy program. This program is run by Level 3 coach Warren Mallory and Ian Smith and provides additional training for Palm Beach Currumbin players selected in the Gold Coast Cricket Representative teams, in order to further improve their cricketing skills towards the elite level.
In the 2019-2020 season we are looking to further develop the culture and improve the transition from Junior to Senior cricket. We have secured a grant to improve the Training Nets and ensure that adequate field lighting exists so that we can use our facilities to their best advantage.
Our Club is committed to providing a safe, fair and inclusive environment for everyone. This includes providing everyone involved with a positive and enriching sporting environment that promotes their participation and development in the sport. Developed to protect children engaged in cricket, Australian Cricket’s "Looking After Our Kids" Code of Behaviour has been formally approved and endorsed by the board of Cricket Australia and the board of each of the State and Territory Cricket Association.

As we continue to build our online social media profile we will be posting photos of children and supporters at cricket events via our website, Facebook and Instagram accounts. There will be no close ups of any persons, unless specific consent is obtained by the individual, parent or guardian. The intent is to display groups of people enjoying the game of cricket, to encourage more people to join our cricket community.
