To apply for membership
To become a member of the South Australian Cricket Association at Adelaide Oval, one of the most prestigious and beautiful Test Cricket grounds in the world, you must register to join the waitlist by completing the online application.
The SACA Board of Management determines the number of people offered membership in August of each year and the number varies from year to year. We are therefore unable to precisely determine the length of time you will be required to wait before you are offered membership of the Association, but current estimates are up to 3 years.
An application for the membership waitlist may be lodged at any time irrespective of the age of the applicant. No applicant shall be offered membership until he/she has reached the top of the waitlist and is at least 10 years of age (on or before 31 August). Applicants aged 10- 14 years that choose not to accept the offer of membership will automatically be added back on the waitlist and the applicant will be re-offered again at the age of 15.
