The Victorian Blind Cricket Team successfully defended the title of T20 National Champions defeating Queensland in a thrilling grand final held at Scotch College, Adelaide in January 2014. The VBCA wishes to thank all sponsors who supported us including The Primary Club of Australia, The Lord'sTaverners Australia, Blind Sports Victorian and Cricket Victoria.

The VBCA will be broadcasting online both the Keilor park CC Vs. VBCA Victorian match on Sunday, the 27th of October and the VBCA vs. Australian Cricket Society game on Sunday, the 20th of October.
The VBCA vs. Australian Cricket Society match will be down at Kooyong commencing at 11:00AM and the Keilor Park CC Vs. VBCA Victorian game will be held at Keilor Park also commencing at 11:00AM.
I am hoping to have some volunteers help out with both ball by ball and some special comments for these two broadcasts.
If you’re keen to get on the air and share your pearls of wisdom with the listening public, please get back to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can finalize a broadcast team for both matches.
I’m definitely looking forward to both days and to bringing more blind cricket to our many loyal listeners.

The VBCA will be celebrating its centennial year in 2022. Help us spread the word for new players and together we can make sure that blind cricket in Victoria is 100 years not out and still going strong.
The middle of a Melbourne winter may be unusual time to launch a player recruitment drive but this upcoming season will present some real challenges for us with player shortages across most Clubs.
I am well aware of the challenges we have faced recruiting new players and equally aware that there is no ‘quick fix’ to boost our playing numbers.
The VBCA has planned several initiatives to recruit new players for this upcoming season but word of mouth still proves to be our most successful recruitment method.
Please share this message through your networks, chat to friends and work mates and former players. With your support I am confident we can turn the tide.
Email address for prospective players of all levels, part-time or casual is email@example.com
