Senior teams at Kissing Point Cricket Club

We provide a welcoming and friendly environment for those wishing to play at all levels, regardless of ability. The club welcomes new players and those who have not played cricket in a while.

Senior grades available are A through to D2. In season 2020/21 we fielded a record 7 teams in the following grades:

  • A Grade
  • B2
  • C2 Grade
  • C4 Reserve
  • D
  • D2 (x2 teams)

Team selection is based on previous season's performance and current player rating provided by the HKHDCA. 

 

Association

Kissing Point Teams participate in HKHDCA (Hornsby Kuring-Gai Hills District Cricket Association) competition which usually runs from September to March following year during each summer.

Competition includes a Semi-final & Grand Final in each grade. In most seasons, a pre-season T20 competition is played with 2 rounds, a Semi-Final and Grand Final played.

Juniors playing in seniors

If your son or daughter cannot find a team, they may like to play in a senior's team. Selection is based on age and ability.

In season 2020/21 we had a number of U15s playing in D and D2 grades, plus a number of younger players in C's, B's and A grade.

It's worth noting that senior's cricket is adult-level cricket,  for instance a 2-day game will have a minium of 70 overs bowled in a day. If you are interested, please contact the VP Seniors email addresses provided.

Senior Training

Note: pre-season training is currently not allowed due to current Public Health Orders. Please stay fit and healthy for when the season starts.

Training times

For 2021/22 season and when allowed, training is on Wednesdays from 4/5pm to dark at Auluba Oval, Auluba Rd, South Turramurra.

If you are interested in playing, or have a friend/friends interested in playing, please feel free to come and have a hit!

Off-season training

There is currently no off-season training due to Public Health Orders.

During normal off-seasons, training is usually on Sundays from 2.30pm till 4pm at Auluba Oval, Auluba Rd, South Turramurra.

Player selection

Selection into a squad is determined by your availability and player rating.

Your rating determines which team you can play in. As a guide, the following list gives a rough indication of where you can expect to play

  • 0-3 - A grades
  • 3-6 - B grades
  • 5-8 - C Grades
  • 8-11 - D Grades

Players with a rating for lower grades may play up in a higher grade, for instance if the higher grade team is short players.

For those players who are new or have not played for a while, you will be given a provisional "P" rating until your rating is determined by on-field results. Players with a P rating may be moved up or down grades with a season depending on results.

A dispensation "D" may be given for a higher grade player to play in a lower grade team, for instance a parent may wish to be in the same squad as their child. This is at the discretion of the Association and dispensated players are restricted in their balls faced and overs bowled.

If you haven't played cricket in a while, or have never played, and you are interested in playing we recommend you contact our VP Seniors.
