The elite indoor cricket season recently began with the Australian Masters Championships in Canberra from 21-27 May, and will soon be followed by the Australian Junior Championships in July.

The nation’s best junior indoor cricketers will gather at the Australian Junior Championships in Mackay from 1 July and will feature 17 & Under Girls and Boys teams, 15 & Under Boys, 14 & Under Girls and two divisions of 13 & Under Boys.

The Australian Open Championships will take place following the Junior Champs and will be played across six divisions, with the Southern Spiders competing in the 21 & Under Men and Women, Open Men, Open Women and Lord’s Taverners. 

The Lord’s Taverners Shield competition invites Australia’s best indoor cricketers with an intellectual disability to compete for the annual national indoor title. 

SA Scorpions captain and wicketkeeper Tegan McPharlin and Scorpions batter Brittany Perry will both play in the Open Women's division, while the tournament will also feature a range of Aboriginal and multicultural players, as well as those travelling from regional South Australia.
