Extreme Heat Policy

The days of Junior Coaches & Managers / Seniors Captains insisting on playing cricket in extreme conditions will come to an end next season. The current Guideline is that if one Team wants to play then the game goes ahead but with more drink breaks.

Common sense and Duty of Care will finally prevail next season when the Grade Cricket policy is adopted and this involves:

  • 37 degrees (based on the ‘Feels like’ Weatherzone app) – more and longer drinks breaks
  • 43 degrees – play ceases immediately and doesn’t start again until it drops below 43
  • 45 degrees – if the forecast at 4.00 pm the day before scheduled play no play will occur.

Greenway Park update

Our Local Federal Member (Julian Leeser) is seeking $3.6m to improve Greenway Park. The major initiative is to build a Community Hall on the grassed slope right next to the existing facilities. It would be Council run and provide a Community meeting place for the Sports who use Greenway (Athletics, AFL, Rugby League and Cricket). The building would have storage facilities for gear, a place to put Trophies and a large meeting place to watch games on both Ovals.

All the Sporting Clubs are forming a Sub-Committee to work with Julian and more information will be communicated as this progresses.

Pink Stumps Day

Our Annual Pink Stumps Day, run by our U9s, is fast approaching:

  • When:              Saturday 10 March 2018
  • Time:               9.00 am to 1.00 pm
  • Where:             Campbell Park

The day is a Fund-raiser double-header played between our U9s. Activities are:

  1. Four games of 10:10 overs each
  2. Pink caps, sausage sizzle and a can of soft drink to be sold to each member of the team at $12.50 each
  3. Sale of cup cakes, brownies etc to be sold at $2.00 per piece;
  4. Pink collection boxes to be placed for donations on the day.

Ticket sales

The Team are selling raffle tickets at Cherrybrook Village as follows:

  • Thursday 1st March between 5.00 pm and 7.00 pm
  • Sunday 4th March between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm

Any support you can offer would be appreciated.

Club Survey

Our Club Survey for Seniors, In2Cricket and Junior Girls was run last week. Junior Boys will open shortly.

The Survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete, is anonymous and your input will used to change what needs changing and to build on what we do well. We will be reviewing the consolidated responses at our next Executive Meeting and the results will then be shared.

When you get the link it would be great if you can complete the Survey and help us to create an even better Club.

Girls Cricket

Weekend results – Sixers League


WPHC Vs Thornleigh (Healy) – scores will be updated once received.


WPHC 71 defeated by Gordon 34 – playing at Thomas Thompson we got to 71 in 19 overs. With rain approaching we only got 5 overs in but Gordon got away to a flier and had enough runs before the game was called off.


WPHC 57 lost to Castle Hill 2/59 – losing the toss and batting first we got to 57 in our 20 overs with Lily Campbell top scoring with 10 runs. Castle Hill were just too strong with the bat and powered their way to 59 in just 8 overs. Danielle Chivers 1/8 (2 overs) along with Minoli Silva 1/9 were our best with the ball.

John Hayne Cup

One to look out for the Teams that did not make the Semi’s is the John Hayne Cup. This is a fun T20 handicap Comp played by Teams that didn’t make the Finals and all players who do not play in the Semi’s are eligible to play.

The Competition is played over the two weekends of the Semi Finals and are double header T20s. If Teams are drawn against higher graded Teams runs penalties apply to even the game.

Stay tuned on this one as more information will follow on this after the last round.
