COVID-19 (Coronia Virus)

Seniors Grand Finals & Rep Trials – cancelled

A note from our Association:

“On the basis of Cricket Australia and Cricket NSW’s strong recommendations, and in the interests of player, official and community health and safety, all 2019/20 senior grand finals are cancelled, and the highest placed teams have been awarded premiers. Refer to the links below for details of CA and CNSW announcements.



 The above resolution was passed at the Executive teleconference meeting 17/3/2020.

 All executive members agreed this was a difficult decision and disappointing end to the season, but we are experiencing extraordinary times.

 Junior representative trials have also been postponed. The rescheduled date of the trials cannot be confirmed in this quickly evolving COVID-19 pandemic.”

Club Survey

Our bi-annual Club Survey across, Junior Blasters, Girls and Juniors is underway. Every registered player should have received a link to Survey Monkey so if you haven’t responded yet then give it a go and help us to make a better Club.

We run these Surveys every 2 years with Seniors being held last season. This is an anonymous Survey that is a catalyst for change.

Already it has resulted in a rewrite of our ‘Participation over Results’ for Juniors, our successful efforts to introduce Pathways cricket to the U8s with the introduction of Master Blasters, ramped up communication, and the move towards greater diversity across the Club.
