The Para Hills Cricket Club was established in 1964 and call Para Hills Oval home in the City of Salisbury.
The club is fortunate to have a few Australian Test Cricketers play at the Club, Terry Jenner and Greg Blewett both had stints with the club before their time in the Green and Gold for Australia.
The club joined the Adelaide Turf Cricket Association in 1971-72 season in the A8 Grade which saw the club defeat Woodville High on 2nd innings to win the Grade A8 Gold Section competition captained by Bob Jones. Para Hills 120 (D. Noonan 41) & 7/151 (G. Fishlock 46, E. Kirby 29, G. Bennetts 27) def. Woodville 175 (D. Noonan 3/20, R. Cox 3/39) & 92 (G. Bennetts 3/24). P. Kleinig won the Batting trophy with a total of 639 @ 45.6 with a highest score of 120. G. Beneetts (13/34) and R. Cox (12/7) both picked up 10 Wickets or more in a match throughout that season. R. Cox with unbeliveable figures of 7/4 and 5/3!
Since the clubs admission into ATCA the club has 20 Senior Premierships to its name. The most recent Premiership was in the 2017/18 Season for the Club's B Grade (B1) side which saw them get promoted to the A3 grade. Season 2018/19 is the first time the club has fielded two sides in the A Grade competition.
