Richmond Union Cricket Club has been located in Richmond since it's original formation in 1967. We are a community based club run by volunteers who have a love of 'Park Cricket'. Catering to senior men, women, juniors (5-18), veterans (Over 60's) and anyone in between.  Our home facilities are proudly located in the heart of Richmond just off Bridge Road. As a club, we pride ourselves on catering to a broad range of abilities, giving everybody an opportunity to take the field.

Competitions

Richmond Union Cricket Club currently plays in three Cricket Associations; Eastern Cricket Association (ECA), Cricket Southern Bayside and Veterans Cricket Victoria. Our Senior men, Junior Boys and Junior Girls all play in the ECA. Most matches are played on Saturdays, with a few played on Sundays for reserve days or when grounds are unavailable. CSB is the home of our senior women's sides and their games are scheduled on Sunday afternoons. Finally Veterans play their games also on Sundays.

The 1st and 2nd men's XI’s both play 2 day matches on Turf wickets whilst the 3rd and 4th XI's play 1 day matches on synthetic surfaces. Having 4 men's grades allows players of all skills and abilities the chance to participate in a game of Cricket on Saturday.  The 3rd and 4th XI are particularly suitable for young players making the transition from junior to senior cricket.
