Richmond Union has 4 senior men's sides suiting a range of abilities; two turf sides that play quality turf cricket (B-Turf and F-Turf Grades) and two synthetic Limited Over Cricket (LOC) sides more suited to social cricket. Turf sides play Home games at Citizens Park on Saturday's. Players in these grades will expected to be a reasonable standard of cricketer and should attend training at least once a week. Synthetic games are played at Burnley Oval on Saturday afternoons.
Richmond Union has two women's cricket sides in the Cricket Southern Bayside association. The 1st's play home games on Sundays at Citizens Park and the 2nd's on Sundays at Burnley Oval. Training is on Tuesdays and Thursday at Citizens park. Women have exclusive use of the 3rd net in a training session. The women's sides are competitive but also very social, so new players to the game are most welcome. We have a senior women's coach, Trevor Forrest, to grow the skills of players of all levels. Junior girls may play in these sides as long as they have parental permission and meet the associations age requirements.
OVER 60'S / VETERANS
The Veterans team play for the enjoyment, fun and friendship that cricket embraces.
Being the largest Junior club within the Eastern Cricket Association (ECA) we have a focus on making sure kids can play a variety of levels of cricket to suit their skills. In the junior age groups, we currently have a total of 21 teams across the girls competition, and the mixed competition which is predominantly boys, but does have some girls playing as well. Training nights are dependent upon the age group, but are held at the cricket nets at Kevin Bartlett Reserve. Our Junior games are scheduled as per below:-
Girls Wednesday nights
Mixed U18, Mixed U16, and Mixed U14s on Friday nights
Mixed U12s Saturday mornings
Mixed U10s & Mixed U9s Sunday mornings.
We often get new players who require the extra guidance to assist them to feel comfortable with playing games each week. At the same time, we also have many elite players who participate not only in A grade teams, but who get selected for VMCU representative teams or other representative formats.
