Basketball & cricket in summer

Just as the footy season wraps up and you’re wondering what to do with your weekends, we turn our minds to junior summer sport in Richmond – cricket and basketball.

Our friends and Citizens Park co-tenants, Richmond Union Cricket Club run a very successful juniors programme, catering for girls and boys aged 5 to 18, running both competition cricket teams and a pre-competition Auskick equivalent “Woolworths Junior Blasters” programme. With 15 junior teams this year, there is a spot for you. Please check out this leaflet and refer to the RUCC website for more information, and how to register. Or alternatively, contact the Junior Coordinator Nick Economos on 0415 906 968 or

Our very successful local basketball club, the Richmond Riots are also currently recruiting for Summer teams. Girls and boys of all ages are welcome, but they are particularly encouraging Girls born 2004, 2005 & 2007 and Boys born 2004 for the summer competition. Register your interest at their website or contact the Registrar at
