Pre-Christmas Saturday competition

We will enter teams in the Brisbane Metropolitan South West Cricket Association (MSW Zone) pre-Christmas competition in Stage 1 (formerly Super 7/8 and Under 10), Under 11, Under 12, Under 13, Under 14 and Opens (combined Under 15, Under 16 and Under 17 age groups) subject to numbers and subject to volunteers (i.e. age group coordinator, team coach and team manager).

The Under 15, Under 16 and Under 17 MSW competitions have been combined into a single Opens competition, which is graded based on skill level into Open A, Open B and Open C.

The Open A division will play one-day games on Sundays following a 40-over format, which is designed to prepare players for grade cricket.

The Open B and Open C divisions will play two-day games following the quarter-cricket format, which is designed to maximise player participation.

Opens players are also eligible to fill in for the Souths Sub-districts team (an adult competition on Saturday afternoons) as part of the club’s pathway program to prepare junior players for adult cricket.

The pre-Christmas MSW junior competition will be a nine-week season.


Training commences the week of 27 August 2018. Each team trains once per week from 4.30 pm to 6.00 pm.

Training is held at South Brisbane District Cricket Club.

Matches are played against teams in the MSW Zone and can take place anywhere from Kenmore to Park Ridge and Macgregor to Wolston Park. The match draw and field locations will be posted on the MyCricket website prior to the start of the season.

Stage 1, Under 11, Under 12 and Under 13 teams will play one-day games. Under 14, Open B and Open C teams will play two-day games in the quarter-cricket format. Open A teams will play one day games.

The Stage 1 competition is focussed on player development and does not involve a competition ladder or premiership. The Under 11 to Open age groups play for a premiership.

Match rules are available on the Metropolitan South West Cricket website.
