Welcome to Wests!
Western Suburbs District Cricket Club has been playing cricket in Brisbane since 1921. Our home base is at the picturesque Graceville Memorial Park in the suburb of Graceville in Brisbane’s western suburbs. We’ve been playing cricket there since 1924, and we also have other major grounds at Chelmer Sports Ground and Dunlop Memorial Park and utilise a number of other grounds for junior cricket.
Who can play for Wests?
Anyone! We offer competitive cricket for junior and senior male and female cricketers of all ages. We also offer fantastic player development programs through our Wests +Plus Cricket Academy.
Our senior Mens, Womens, Lords Taverners and Youth Girls play in the Queensland Premier Cricket competitions and our junior teams play in the Metropolitan South West (MSW) junior cricket association competitions. We also field a team in the Premier Cricket Over Forties competition.
Pathways to Premier Cricket
Western Suburbs District Cricket Club is one of only twelve Premier Cricket clubs in Queensland. Our Men’s and Women’s Premier Grade teams have enjoyed outstanding success, and a number of Wests cricketers have progressed to playing representative cricket for Queensland and Australian representative teams.
For juniors, playing for Wests and participating in our training programs provides opportunities to pursue representative cricket at junior level, and ultimately progress to Premier Cricket and representative cricket at senior level.
