Welcome Pie Night this Thursday

All members are invited to a pie night at the Swinburne Ave clubrooms from
6:30pm this Thursday 21 September 2017 to welcome MCC Kew Sports members to
our new merged club. It would be great if as many of our members as
possible are available to meet with our new members from MCC Kew Sports.
The normal practice will take place before the Pie Night.

To assist with catering, it would be helpful if you could let Ian Mackay know by
close of business Wednesday if you wish to attend.

Selection for Remaining Practice Games

For those members not aware, Selection will be on Monday nights this year with the aim of having selected teams posted later that evening.

To assist selectors arrange sides for the final 3 practice days we ask members check the latest availability list (link below) and if any of the details are not current please advise by email –

Should no further advice be received, only those listed as available on the attached document will be selected in teams this coming weekend.

Also, given the 4.45 start to the Richmond/GWS game at the MCG we are exploring the possibility of an early start for the Bundoora games rather that the prearranged 12.45 roll up (possibly an 11.45am roll up for a midday start). Updates will be posted as they come to hand.

Availability Update

Sep 15

Greens Closed Again. Practice Matches Cancelled

UPDATE: Bundoora practice match cancelled.

For all members keen for practice today, please come in uniform to Glen St at 12.45

A side from Altona is coming to play an interclub match.

Intraclub games will be arranged for others.

To assist with organising rinks please leave comment to this post to confirm attendance.

There will no practice games tomorrow (Saturday 16/9) against Caulfield Park Alma, nor will there be any intra club practice,  as our Greenkeeper has closed both grass greens at Swinburne Ave & Glen St.

Changes for Sat 9 September

Due to the recent weather our green keeper has advised as follows:-
Swinburne Ave
-Play to be in an East-West direction only.
-Only the centre 4 rinks of each green are to be used
-Greens will be closed till 12.45, i.e. no pre game practice.

Glenn St
all rinks open on both greens and north-south play OK

As a result of the reduced rink availability, the 4 teams selected in the 5th side to play intra club games, will be relocated to Glen Street.

Members are also advised there will be a BBQ at Swinburne Ave following play.

Availability for Practice Matches – URGENT REMINDER

The Selectors are keen to know about members’ availability for preseason practice and the season ahead. Thanks to those members who have already advised that they are available for pennant. However, some members have been unsure or forgotten to provide availability feedback. As you can appreciate, this makes the job of selection even more difficult. Therefore, would those members yet to confirm their availability please provide details to the selectors as soon as possible on

Sep 06


Last weekend resignations were received and accepted from Trevor Rout, Chairperson Saturday Pennant and Robert Storey, Selector Saturday Pennant. The Committee has moved quickly to fill these important positions and last night appointed John Kaloger as Chairperson Saturday Pennant and Brendan McKay as a Selector Saturday Pennant. As Chairperson, John will have the casting vote on all selection discussions. Brendan will be able to vote on all seven Sides during selection.  As part of Brendan’s role, he is to ensure representation for the players from fourth & fifth sides and all new bowlers.

Please support our new selectors who, as we all know, have taken on a difficult but rewarding task.

Midweek Pennant Practice Tuesday September 12th

Contrary to an earlier announcement, selection for this practice match will take place on the day.  The selectors are unable to select teams prior to then due to the number of players whose availability is undecided due to ill health and other issues.
