Representative cricket

The Kenmore Cricket Club is affiliated with the Metropolitan South West District Cricket Association – also known as Metro South West (MSW). Kenmore junior cricket teams play against other local cricket clubs in age group competitions organised and administered by MSW.

Each year, MSW selects representative teams to participate in State Championship and State Development competitions for under 12 through to under 16 age groups. These carnivals are organised by Queensland Junior Cricket, in association with Queensland Cricket.

Kenmore cricket players are eligible to be selected in MSW representative teams and attend these carnivals. However, in order to be considered for selection in a MSW representative team, Kenmore Cricket players must be registered with our club – that is, have a current MyCricket number. For more information about MSW representative teams, including nomination forms and selection policy, you may visit the MSW website.

Please note: All players are required to complete a nomination form each year. Players attending trials for the first time, and players who attended previously and were not selected, must have their nomination form signed by either their Kenmore Cricket age group coordinator or the club President. Without this authority players will be ineligible to trial.

Training, costs for the carnival, kit allocation and travel requirements


Once selected, a player will be advised by their MSW coach or manager when and where training and trial matches will take place, the cost to participate in a carnival, the travel requirements and how to collect their kit, and other such administrative matters.
