Galaxy clusters are sources of gravitational radiation. The main aim of this paper is to give numerical estimates and theoretical description of the relevant features of the gravitational radiation coming from an appropriate spatial distributions of galaxy clusters. Since no analytical approaches are currently available to describe the strongly nonlinear regime, our numerical approach -combining numerical simulations with statistical arguments - seems to be an useful way of studying the main features of that radiation. Although far to be detectable with present technology, we advance some ideas about future observational strategies and its cosmological implications.
