History

The Heathmont Baptist Church Cricket Club was formed in 1976, thanks largely to the efforts of the local Pastor at the time, the Rev. John Wright. The club initially began with a single junior side with the first senior side being entered one year later in 1977/78, in 'H' grade of the RDCA.

The club shifted from the RDCA to the ESDCCA in season 1985/86 and remained in there through the next 20 years including the association merger which formed the ECA. Through that period the club typically fielded 2 senior sides and had sustained success with several premierships and frequent finals appearances

The club decided to return to the RDCA in 2009/10 after members had found the constant travel in the ECA too much of a burden. Since re-joining the RDCA, the club has entered 3-4 senior sides along with junior sides at all age levels.

At the conclusion of the 2018-19 season, the members of the club voted to change our name to the Heathwood Cricket Club to reflect our inclusive member base and our location on the border of Heathmont and Ringwood. The club also decided to update the colours and adopt the Lion as our new mascot to complete a new unique identity in the area.
