Cricket Lovers is for anyone who loves the games of cricket whether it be Club Cricket, 20/20, ODI, Test Match or Backyard Cricket.

Our 'Cricket Club' is special. We have members who played cricket as juniors or seniors, those who watch it all year round, others who follow it come summer, and some who just like listening to it on the radio...the one thing in common for all is that we love our cricket.

It's a good wicket because Cricket Lovers (SA) aim is to promote the game of cricket. We have been doing this with The Australian Cricket Society for more than 34 years and support Young Cricket Talent through our Member Events.

Do you love your cricket?
