Ponds Cricket Club - From two to 22 teams and winning the premiership in 2018-19

Sunday 10 Nov 2019

Club Cricket has always played an important role in the development of upcoming cricketers. There have been many players, both men and women, who have progressed along to first-class and international cricket, having participated in club cricket at various age levels.

It not only gives the participants a chance to play at a level to suit their ability and lifestyle but also allows them to take part in social activities and meet new people from the local community.

Since its inception in 2012, Ponds Cricket Club has grown to have multiple junior and senior teams. From a humble start from two teams in 2012, Ponds Cricket Club has 22 teams now - 14 junior teams and eight senior teams. From winning no games at all to winning the premiership last season, Ponds Cricket Club has also been nominated for the community cricket club of the year.

As sponsors, First National North Western has played an important role in the progress of Pond Cricket Club and the development of players of all ages and maintaining Ponds Cricket Club’s position as a premier cricket club. Ms Ruma and her team have been improving the facilities and upholding the club’s reputation for providing cricket at all levels.
