I HAVE NEVER PLAYED INDOOR CRICKET DO YOU OFFER SOMETHING FOR BEGINNERS?
We have a league to suit all skills levels. The majority of our leagues are Social/ recreational level, meaning beginners are welcome, as well as people that haven’t played in a long time. On the first week of the season for our lower divisions we run a learn to play session. Our Staff will teach you everything you need to know, and even help coach you throughout the season.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ON THE FIELD/COURT AND HOW MANY DO YOU SUGGEST WE PUT ON OUR TEAM?
Indoor Cricket requires 6 - 8 people on the field.
I AM HOPING TO REGISTER AS A TEAM, BUT I AM JUST GETTING IT ALL ORGANISED, WILL I MISS OUT?
Some leagues will sell out quickly, so you will need to be prepared ahead of time. For some leagues we do offer team deposits. Call (02) 9525-5499 for us to reserve a spot for you today.
I DON’T HAVE A TEAM, I WANT TO REGISTER ON MY OWN, IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Yes, we offer individual registration as well. CLICK HERE and more info about signing up to an individually formed team.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING, OR WEAR WHEN PLAYING INDOOR CRICKET?
You can wear normal activewear and runners. The Rec Club will supply everything for your team, including a batting gloves, wicket keep gloves, bats and balls. Bring your own if you wish.
We encourage teams to get into the spirit and get uniforms. The Rec Club can help supply t-shirts for as little as $20 per shirt custom made.
HOW LONG DO THE GAMES LAST FOR?
1 hour to 1 hour and 15 Minutes
DO THE TEAMS TRAIN OR PRACTICE?
Generally, no. Because it’s a recreational league, most teams show up on the night of play and maybe warm up together. If you and your team want to practice that’s completely a team decision and we can help out with space through our court hire.
DO PLAYERS HAVE SET POSTITIONS IN THE GAME?
- The court is divided into two halves with the dividing line being the non-striker's running crease.
No more than 4 fielders may field in either half of the court for (seniors) and 3 fielders for (juniors) from the moment the bowler commences their run up until the ball leaves the bowler's hand. On the line is considered in the other half. If this rule is contravened, the umpire will call "No Ball".
- No Fielders on the Pitch
- An Exclusion Zone will be marked in an arc extending at a radius of 3 metres from the batting crease. No fielder can move on or extend over the Exclusion Zone
- Wicket Keeper: A fielder is classified as a wicket keeper if they take up position behind the stumps at the striker's end in the area designated for the wicket keeper. The area designated for the wicket keeper is between the imaginary lines extending along the extremities of the pitch to the back net and the line running at right angles through the stumps at the striker's end. (See diagram on court layout). The wicket keeper must take up a position with both feet wholly inside the designated area and cannot move out of that area until the ball leaves the bowler's hand
