Apart from football and netball, Bell Park has a cricket team.[2]


In 1958 they were founded as an under 15 team, then in 1959 they also entered an under 18 side. The first senior side was fielded in 1960 in the Geelong & DFL, Jarman Cup division.

When the Geelong Football League was formed in 1979, Bell Park was one of the 10 clubs that broke away from the Geelong & District Football League.[3] The city and country clubs of the old GDFL were divided into the major league competition of the GFL and the minor league GDFL.

In 2002, Ken Hinkley took up the role of senior coach and oversaw a premiership in 2003.
