Cricket ACT is proud to announce the launch of a new winter indoor cricket competition for Canberra’s cricketers. Beginning this Saturday and concluding at the end of August, Cricket ACT’s grade clubs, together with teams from City & Suburban and from Canberra’s indoor cricket centres will contest the inaugural Brad Bretland Cup for men and the Bronwyn Calver Cup for women.

Commenting on the new competition, Cricket ACT Chief Executive Officer Mark Vergano said “the team at Cricket ACT is excited about the opportunities the new competitions offer for cricketers in the region, particularly for our women’s cricketers. The fact that Tuggeranong, Eastlake, Weston Creek and Wests/UC will vie for the inaugural Bronwyn Calver Cup is a significant step forward for women’s cricket in Canberra.”

The launch of the new competition is a progression of the co-operative arrangements between indoor cricket and Cricket ACT. This follows indoor cricket’s presence at the recent High Performance Awards and DB Robin Medal event. Reflecting on the new arrangements, Mr Vergano said “indoor cricket is a natural fit at Cricket ACT. A number of our elite cricketers have represented us in both the indoor and outdoor formats, and have since gone on to play first class cricket or international cricket. Eastlake’s Nick Winter, recently signed to a rookie contract in South Australia, joins Tuggeranong’s Jason Floros, and Queanbeyan’s Brad Haddin as recent examples of Canberra cricketers with indoor cricket backgrounds making it big on the national and international stage. We know that our new competition will, in conjunction with our existing grade and high performance programs, aid us in continuing to produce top quality cricketers in Canberra.”

Round 1 takes place from 3:45pm this Saturday afternoon at Weston Indoor Sports
