Our History

Piara Waters Cricket Club was originally registered as the Southern River Cricket Club in 2006 by past members of the Gosnells Cricket Club.  These past members made a decision that it was no longer affordable to operate SMCA sides under the Gosnells Cricket Club banner. For that reason they established Southern River Cricket Club to allow players to remain in the local area and still have representation in the SMCA competition.


With 2 sides, Southern River Cricket Club was based at Sutherlands Park in Huntingdale during it's inaugural 2006/07 season. The club gradually grew to 3 sides in 2010/11 which it maintained until 2013/14, but growth was restricted by a lack of club rooms and facilities and with that a lack of genuine appeal to attract new players.


In 2014 the opportunity to relocate the Club to the new and growing area of Piara Waters with brand new facilities became available. The move necessitated a change in name but the original club mascot ("the falcons") and colours were retained. The move was formally agreed by members and made in time for the commencement of the 2014/15 season.


Since moving to Piara Waters, the club has experienced rapid growth, expanding to 4 sides in 2014/15, 6 sides in 2015/16, and 7 sides with over 140 active members in 2018/19. The club has also participated in the short format "Formula 15" competition on Tuesday nights, which has proved a popular fixture for players and spectators alike. 


Since our inception the club has made regular finals appearance, and now boasts 10 premierships across a variety of one day and two day grades.

 

Our founders and board members from past to present have worked hard to build the club into a successful, family friendly environment where everyone is included and considered a part of the team. We pride ourselves on ensuring everyone can have an affordable game of cricket, while remaining competitive and enjoyable for everyone.
