Each year an annual Men’s and Women’s team is selected to play in the National Cricket Inclusion Championships and players receive access to high performance coaching opportunities with further aspirations to represent Australia.
Members of this team come from across Victoria with many coming from both traditional Community Cricket Clubs as well as the Melbourne Deaf Cricket Club (MDCC) which was established in 1880-81 and has been providing an opportunity for deaf cricketers to play ever since.
The MDCC welcomes any new members as players or volunteers. For more information or to join the club, connect with them on Facebook here.
In 2022, the National Championships were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the Men’s and Women’s Deaf team (along with the Intellectually Disabled team) took part in a two day event which included education sessions, team photos, shirt presentation and matches at Casey Fields. Found out more about that event here.
Information about the 2023 National Cricket Inclusion Championships will be announced later in 2022.
Please note that the bookings for our Cricket Facilities are made in real time and therefore don’t appear in this cart.
