||Our No 1 field Peter Burge Oval, was named after our best known player who had a remarkable career with Queensland, making 91 first-class appearances in a career that spanned from 1952-53 through to 1967-68. He captained Queensland on 28 occasions and was named in the state's Cricket Team of the Century. The Burge family also has a long association with the club and the Redlands district. The Burge family has a long association with the club and indeed the Redlands as Peter's grandparents once owned Whepsted House.
Fred Kratzmann a long standing member in the Redlands Cricket arena, was instrumental in the early stages of Wellington Point cricket development and has our No. 2 oval named after him.
Ron Field was a local councilor who helped provide many cricket facilities in the Redlands. Ron loved cricket and his work and efforts have been recognised by having our No. 3 oval named after him.
Redland Tigers are extremely proud of our facilities & the club won the Best Grounds for five consecutive years but that does not mean that the club can stop investing in & improving on what we have. As a club, we have a lot of plans to grow & improve so we can continually attract more players & spectators to our sport & club
