Carnivals and Competitions

Each year there are a number of cricket carnivals held across South Australia for regional and metropolitan players. Learn more below.

Revamped for the 2020/2021 season, the SACA Representative Carnivals competitions bring together the best underage cricketers from across both metropolitan and country community Clubs and Associations, at Under 12 (Boys), Under 14 (Boys) and Under 16 (Boys & Girls) level. The format includes an opportunity for players to play against fellow city-based or country-based teams in their pools, in an action packed week or Cricket.

The teams represent the five junior metropolitan Associations (Adelaide Turf, North East Juniors, Para Districts, South Central and Western Suburbs), and the eight country Zones (Barossa & Light, Eyre Peninsula, Fleurieu & Districts, Mid North, Murray Districts / Barrier, South East, Upper North, Yorke Peninsula).

Additionally, part of the SACA Representative Carnivals is the Senior Country Cup, which is nearing its 100th year. The above eight Country Zones form seven teams and are joined by the Alice Springs Cricket Association for an annual competition between the best senior men’s cricketers across country South Australia. The Senior Country Cup aids selection for the ‘SA Outbacks’ team that competes in the Australian Country Cricket Championships.
