Kissing Point Cricket Club is located in Turramurra on Sydney’s North Shore. Our main home ground & licensed clubhouse are situated in Auluba Road, South Turramurra, 2074. KPCC is part of the Kissing Point Sports Club.
We have teams in junior cricket & senior cricket for all ages & abilities. KPCC also has an In2cricket Program for the 4-6 year olds run at Auluba Oval on Wednesday afternoons between 4.45pm and 6pm. Cricket coaching & training is provided for all levels. Our Junior teams start with the Under 8's through to the Under 16's. We have a policy of placing friends with friends where possible in the teams. U8 to U10 are called 'Non Competition' with games lasting about 2 hours on Saturday mornings. The teams U11 - U16 are involved in the Junior Competition played on Saturday mornings. More information can be found on the games & our club juniors philosophy on the website menu under 'Juniors'. For the Seniors A Grade & A Reserve( Kookaburra Cup) play on turf. B Grade through to D2 Grade play on a hard wicket. Seniors play on Saturday afternoons.
We are currently trying to encourage more girls & women to join the club, please contact us if you are interested.
The club is affiliated with the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai & Hills District Cricket Association (HK&HDCA) & the’ Weet-Bix Twenty20 Cup’ cricket competition. Games are played on grounds including the areas of Turramurra, Wahroonga, St Ives, Hornsby, Mt Colah, Berowra, Pennant Hills, Kenthurst and Glenorie. The Club runs social activities throughout the season - the Junior T20's under lights on a Friday night & the Senior BBQ on a Saturday after the matches at Auluba are some of the events on offer. We play from September to March. The Juniors & Seniors season start date is usually the 2nd Saturday in September. In2cricket starts in October & runs for 12/13 weeks. Juniors break for school holidays. Juniors semis & finals are usually the 1st weekend in March. Seniors at the end of March.
KPCC would like to address the problem of our lack of teenage Juniors - in some years, not all. In the past our Junior numbers have declined as many of them start to attend Independent schools that require they play school sport on Saturday mornings. As many Independent schools are now scheduling their sport also in the afternoon, KPCC has not to date looked to move away from the Saturday morning spot it currently occupies. We are providing what many of our Independent school Junior players call 'Real Cricket'. In our Junior Competition games (U11 up) each team faces a maximum of between 50-60 overs, depending on the age group. The 2 day format allows the players to learn & use proper batting technique & to bowl proper spells, giving them the excitement of Test cricket. This is something which the shorter format games offered by the Independent schools (& Clubs in other competitions), although great for entertainment, is not educating young cricketers in. Under pressure to score quickly in the shorter format, the less experienced cricketer learns bad habits & often performs poorly.
The cricket Junior who wants to play Representative cricket for their area, must first belong to a Club. We have Juniors who play for their School, our Club & play Representative cricket on Sundays. You needn't go this far, but it is possible to combine Independent school sport & Club cricket successfully. It is definitely worthwhile & can be very rewarding.
