Welcome to Winter 2017

Please note: Winter Cricket is run under the name Apaches, and has a number of over-lapping players, but is a separate entity from the Summer Kingsford Apaches Club

Brief rundown on how Winter is different: Well, it's 9 a side, the matches are one-dayers of 36 overs from each team, with a maximum of 6 overs per bowler.

Which makes it a lot more social, everyone gets a go, and there's no 2 week matches

Due to its excessive popularity over the last few years, each Division plays every second week - even numbered divisions play one week, off numbered divisions the other week. Also due to the popularity, there are usually a couple of Sunday matches sprinkled through the mix as well...

Dates

Season 2017 is meant to starts on April 22/23 for Even Divisions, and April 29/30 for Odd Divisions this season.

Costs

With the Apaches, there are a range of fees to suit how often you wish to play:

  • Per match - $30 - Perfect for the player low on funds, or who only wishes to play a game here and there. Includes umpire's fees
  • Per season - $150 - To play every second week with an Even or Odd numbered Divisional team. A total of 7 matches plus any finals are covered by this. Doesn't include $5 upires fees per match

Also, each match will have an umpire - budget $5/match to pay the umpire. And support of the sponsor is considered an important part of playing - getting back to the pub for at least a lemonade after the matches should be part of your commitment.
