I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and on behalf of Nunawading Cricket Club, I wish you all a safe and happy 2019.
It was great to see so many people at our Junior Christmas Party – despite the rain. It certainly has been a season of ups and downs weather wise (one like we have not had in a while). Either way though, it is fantastic to see how our junior players are developing and enjoying their cricket.
Big Bash League Memberships
As mentioned previously, all Juniors (excluding Junior Blasters), receive a two game membership to either the Melbourne Stars or Melbourne Renegades. These memberships had been delayed, however I did receive all Memberships over the last weekend (they were all delivered to me).
I have handed a number off to families over the last few days, however if you would like to utilise your child’s membership sooner rather than later, please let contact me – and we can arrange a pick up/collection time.
Alternatively, all Juniors should have received an ‘e ticket’ – via one of your registered email addresses, which can be downloaded and printed. This will work the same way as the membership card, and admit your child to two matches. This email was sent on Wednesday 19 December (directly from the either the Stars or Renegades). If you are not sure which of your email addresses that was sent to, again, please let me know.
Finally – I do have a small number of Adult passes and additional childrens passes to Melbourne Stars/Melbourne Renegades matches. If you would like these, please let me know (first in best dressed). Please only ask if you are definitely planning on attending.
Nunawading Cricket Club Junior Blasters at the MCG
Despite the hot weather, Australia’s struggles with the ball and a pitch that resembled concrete,some of our Junior Basters, entertained the crowd at the MCG yesterday during lunch time. I am sure the crowd were more excited to see Nunawading Crickets out there, than the cricket they were watching………..
This was a great opportunity – many thanks to Daniel (Smudge) and Claire for organising.
Friday 1 February will see the resumption of matches and Junior Blasters. Super 7s and Fast 9s will resume on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 February.
The Girls competition is also expected around this time. (Again, any girls interested in playing a 5-6 week season, please let me know).
Coaches/Team Managers will advise all players directly when training resumes.
