Club Cricket

Club cricket is a mainly amateur, but still formal, form of the sport of cricket, usually involving teams playing in competitions at weekends across NW Province.

Saturday league cricket is the most serious format of club cricket. The game will usually be a limited overs contest of between 45 or 50 overs per side, with bonus points awarded based on runs, wickets. This format of cricket covers teams that vary in standard between occasional players in the lower divisions to professional and ex-professional players in the highest leagues.

Most clubs have their own ground to play on regularly, including a field and pavilion or club house. Some also have nets for practice. These facilities may be owned or leased by the club itself, or may be provided by the local authority.
