2021 Midweek League

The VDCA Division II: Midweek League provides a welcoming environment for cricketers of all ages and abilities.

Matches are played on weeknights between April and August at venues across the city, and generally run around two hours in duration. While remaining very competitive, matches are played with a spirit of inclusion and encouragement, and most teams are affiliated with one of Victoria's many fine public houses which allows post-match dissection and discussion long after the final ball.

To get involved, contact the League Chair Doug de la Mare or one of the Club Representatives, or just pop by Beacon Hill at about 6pm during the season for a chat.
