About the Club

Shree Kutch Leva Patel Cricket Club (SKLPCC-WA) was established in 2009, by passionate members of the wider SKLP WA Community. The Club’s main objectives are to provide a structured environment, which would allow players to harness their skills and talent at a community focused Club. Additional to this it was also important the Club fostered a community focussed culture, as this would allow non-playing members of the wider SKLP WA community to also feel included.

In our first year a few friendly games were played, along with a number competitive indoor and T20 games to gauge how well the club could perform and also to encourage more players to join the club. As word spread of the club’s existence, more players began showing an interest and membership numbers grew.

With the increase in playing members, eventually there were enough players to field two teams in a T20 competition, held during March 2010. Both teams performed admirably, with one of the teams performing exceptionally well to win the competition. To build on these initial successes, two further teams were registered for a local 6-aside indoor competition, played between April and July 2010. Once again both teams performed well, with one of the teams finishing as runners up in their respective competition. These first successes, demonstrated the great progression made by the Club in a relatively short period of time.

In 2010 the club entered 2 teams to play competitive cricket in the Perth Cricket Association (PCA). In only the second season of competing in the PCA, SKLPCC-WA was crowned 5th Grade Premiers 2011/12, a remarkable achievement given the inception of the club being in 2009. This confirmed the immense talent available within our community, whose recruitment would allow the club to build and strive for further successes.

From 2009 to 2013, the Club’s focus was on the establishment of successful senior teams; however it also acknowledged that a Juniors Program was required, to provide opportunity for junior members of the Community to play cricket. A successful junior’s program, that is well administered and organised, would help develop the talent of young cricketers and provide a route of natural progression to the senior teams. A Juniors Academy was established and affiliated with SKLPCC-WA for the 2013-2014 season.

The Junior Colts Team is registered to play competitive cricket at an Under 12 level in the North West Metropolitan Cricket Association (NWMCA). A substantial amount of work went into this as the NWMCA were not keen on us joining as we were a new club. In the end persistence paid off and we can proudly say we are the first community cricket club too play in this association.

Our Seniors Teams will continue to strive for continued success, and set a strong pathways program for our affiliated Junior Club
