Adelaide Turf Cricket Association

With the development of the community based club structure, a need became necessary to incorporate a junior competition at Under 15 and Under 17 levels providing a clear pathway for young cricketers to move into senior representation, without having to change clubs at this important stage of their development. The junior competition of ATCA currently incorporates over 50 teams playing turf cricket on Sunday afternoons.
