Located just an hour away from the centre Sydney, a game at Camden Park is as much about the Cricket as it is the picturesque Australian bush setting and accommodating social facilities.
IZA first played at the historic Camden Park in the early 1900s and did so until a flood washed the cricket ground away in the 1920s. Cricket did not return to Camden Park until the 1960s when the property owner Quentin MacCarthur-Stanham invited the club to build a cricket ground at Camden Park. The site on which the ground now stands was selected and the enterprise of the members saw the bush and farm setting transformed into a cricket ground and a turf wicket laid.
Camden Park under the invitation of John MacArthur-Stanham continues to be the site of 20 IZA fixtures a year and recent upgrades to the Pavilion and fence make it a terrific venue to host touring teams as well as social and competitive games of cricket.

IZingari has had a long association with Shore (Sydney Church of England Grammar School) and many I Zingari members are Old Boys of the school. The club first played the school in 1903 and the annual fixture at the commencement of the season is amongst the most popular.
The school has generously allowed the club to use the oval at Northbridge and the club enjoys the use of one of the finest ovals in Sydney.
