Juniors Grading Dates

  • Wakehurst Redbacks is a community cricket club for the enjoyment, participation and development of players of all ages and abilities.  The club plays in the MWJCA competitions that usually consist of two divisions.

  • It is important that players play in the correct division to ensure that everyone gets opportunities to develop and enjoy playing cricket and that stronger players are challenged in a competitive environment.

  • Prior to the season commencing the club holds grading sessions which along with MyCricket statistics and coaches’ feedback are used to allocate players to divisions.

  • All Wakehurst teams are selected to be competitive in their division and where possible to have boys/girls playing with friends/schoolmates.  Wakehurst teams are not graded within the club e.g. Team A/B.

  • Where possible any MWJCA representative players are distributed across teams with the age group.  This ensures that these players are challenged by playing against each other.

Please get as many people to come along as you can.

The KM Classic Charity Cricket Game is an event that is currently in its 3rd year and is played in memory of Kian Mantle and aims to raise money for brain cancer research.

Kian tragically passed away from brain cancer at the age of 20 after a hard fought battle with the disease. To date the KM Classic Charity Cricket Game has raised $23,000 for the Brain Cancer Group in North Sydney who have been able to use that money to buy state of the art lab equipment to further study and understand brain cancer and investigate possible ways to treat it.

The charity game is being played on the Sunday, 23rd of February at 1.30pm
The amazing Manly Oval, Many Sydney is the venue.
