Established in 1921, the Western Suburbs District Cricket Club is a not-for-profit community run cricket club based at Graceville Memorial Park on Oxley Road Graceville. We have approximately 250 senior members (200 male and 50 female) and 350 junior members, representing approximately 600 families living predominantly in the south west of Brisbane.
If you are in one of the 30,000 cars travelling each day along Oxley road in Brisbane’s west, you can’t help but notice the picturesque and iconic Graceville Memorial Park with its heritage listed grandstand and white picket fenced cricket ovals. Since 1924, Graceville Memorial Park has been the home of one of Brisbane’s oldest and most successful Cricket Clubs, the Western Suburbs District Cricket Club: “Wests” - the mighty Bulldogs.Wests is a strong and successful club providing the summer sport option for the community of the western suburbs. WSDCC has eight Men’s teams, two Women’s teams and two Youth teams playing in Queensland’s Premier Cricket competitions. We also have a junior playing base of over 300 and a vibrant club community of approximately 1,200 people. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to partner with this great club and our great sport of cricket. Wests has enjoyed great success in recent years, most notably winning premierships in both our Men’s and Women’s First Grade sides in consecutive years. In the past 4 years our club has amassed 7 premierships across the grades and in all formats of the game.In addition, the Men’s teams have seen the elevation of Wests players to higher honors, including speedster Brendan Doggett to the Brisbane Heat and Queensland Bulls, Batting dynamo Sam Truloff to the Queensland Bulls. Speedster Blake Edwards selected in the Australian U19’s and now a Rookie Bulls contracted player. Our Women’s team is dominated by representative players including Queensland Fire and Brisbane Heat captain Kirby Short, leading internationals Holly Ferling (Queensland Fire) and Grace Harris (Queensland Fire and Brisbane Heat) and Australian U19 wicket keeper / bat Josie Dooley (Queensland Fire and Brisbane Heat). After Wests dominated the women’s first grade competition over the last two seasons, all-rounders Meagan Dixon and Courtney Sippel and wicket-keeper batsman Josie Dooley have been rewarded with Queensland Fire contracts. An indication of our ongoing strength of our club in women’s cricket is the fact that the Premier Cricket Women's’ First Grade competition is named after Wests and Australian legend Katherine Raymont and the Second grade competition is named after our most successful past player, Queensland Fire and Australian captain Jodie Fields. Junior cricket is the current and future strength of our club. We provide a fantastic sporting environment for young cricketer’s to both develop their game and to develop the strength of purpose that a commitment to a technically demanding sport like cricket provides. Our junior teams regularly win premierships on the Metropolitan South West District junior competitions. To underpin these successes and to enable our young crickets to grow into our future Premier Grade stars, Wests has implemented Wests +Plus Cricket Academy in 2018. The Academy links our junior and senior members and provides our young cricketers with the skills they need for future success.Wests is a dynamic, youthful club with a strong sense of history, and a desire to contribute to the development of our community and our sport. We’d be delighted if you joined us!
