The POWER HOUSE CRICKET CLUB was formed in 1989 by a group of guys who decided they wanted to spend the summer enjoying a friendly game of cricket together. Beginning with one side playing in a YMCA matting competition, we now field four strong teams in B and C grades of the Mercantile Cricket Association.
Last season we took out the MCA C-grade premiership. In season 2005/06 and 2006/07 we took out back to back MCA A-grade premierships.
The MCA is a wholely turf competition. Through the MCA we are able to utilise the grounds located in Fawkner Park as our home grounds.
The Power House Cricket Club is affiliated with Power House & Lord Somers Camp, which is recognised as one of the premier youth leadership and development organisations in Australia.
