COMPETITION:

 

GBCC fields junior teams for boys and girls across all ages in the Penrith Junior Cricket Association (PJCA). The season usually commences in the final week of Term 3 (September) and continues until the weekend before Christmas. Games recommence the week before the school year starts, with finals in early March. There are generally no games scheduled on the October long weekend.


Games are played on Saturday mornings, but ground availability may occasionally require Sunday morning games. Fields are within a 25minute radius from Springwood (west) to St Clair (east), and from Castlereagh (north) to Luddenham (south).
