Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – well, it all starts this weekend!! Let the cricket begin!!

Friday Night – Community Night
After matches, Junior Blasters and training on Friday, please everyone come up stairs for SUPER BURGERS and SAUSAGES, a cold drink – and most importantly hear how our children performed. The weather is looking great – so it should be a beautiful night.

This is one of the aspects of our club which makes us unique. For those families new to Nunawading, this is a weekly way we celebrate our Children’s cricket – and allows us as a community to come together as well. There is obviously no compulsion to do so, however everyone is welcome to attend for whatever amount of time they can!! I would also suggest that everyone has a great time!! Having over 200 people through the Club Rooms on a Friday night is something we should all feel great about.

Season Launch – Friday 19 October

The following Friday, we will have our Season Launch. This will be one of our themed Friday nights. At our season launch, we will have pizza – and also some important announcements for the season ahead and presentations celebrating the end of last season.

Sponsor of the Week
It is timely to advise that we are fortunate to have Piccolino Pizza sponsor the club again this year. John, Simon and the team are great supporters of Nunawading. Not only sponsoring us, but providing ‘Player of the Match’ awards (which includes a small pizza and drink) for our children – one per each team per week. Additionally, as a Member of Nunawading you receive a discount on take away pizzas with the presentation of your Member Card (if you have not yet received yours, please let me know). Please support Piccolinos either their Restaurant or Take Away – and always say ‘thanks from Nunawading’!!

Commencement of Matches
If at this stage, you are unsure of what team your child is in, please let me know ASAP. All matches start in the coming week:

  • U12, U14, U16, U18 – Friday 12 October
  • Junior Blasters – Friday 12 October
  • Super 7s and Fast 9s – Saturday 13 / Sunday 14 October (Training Friday 12 October 6.00pm – 7.15pm)
  • Girls Team – Wednesday 17 October

Training for all teams is also now as per coach’s advices – and have settled into what will be normal for the season ahead.

We are still very happy to have new players attend at Nunawading, so if you know of anyone wanting to play cricket – please let me know!!

Additionally, if you have not yet registered or paid Subs, please can you do so at your convenience.

As soon as we have your apparel, we will let you know. The club has put in two orders on the last 6 weeks – and also has some limited additional stock available. If you have not yet ordered apparel, please do so. We require children to play in a Nunawading shirt and purple cap (excludes Junior Blasters).

Junior Blasters – Kits
As forecast a couple of weeks ago, it does appear Cricket Australia have had some challenges getting participation kits to children. I understand all registered families will have received an email advising of the delay from Cricket Australia. There is still hope that they will arrive before Friday – however if not, please feel free to have your child wear a T-shirt or other suitable top (depending n the weather).

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night – any questions, please let me know.
