In the off season of 2011 the two clubs decided to meet to discuss the potential of merging as a way to help grow the clubs and keep them around for longer.
After that meeting the clubs went back to their AGM's and raised it with all members to get the go ahead continuing to investigate the pro's and con's. Once the season started both clubs met on 10th December 2011 at the Greenwood CC's clubrooms, about a 100 members turned up to vote unanimously in favour of merging and a sub committee of members from both clubs was formed with the responsibility of making the merger happen. The sub committee was made up of Justin Shakeshaft, Xavier Deering, Denham Barr, Shane Richardson, Mark Grimes, Brad Staples, Glen Marsh, Glenn Farr, Ryan Lowth, Richard Corr, each member had a role in getting the new club formed. The club is looking forward to the coming inaugural season.
The Warwick Greenwood Cricket Club was established in 2012 after the merger between Warwick CC and Greenwood CC. Both clubs have a long history that dates back to the late 70's and early 80's with a lot of success between the clubs. We now have 8 teams in total for the 2019/20 season with 7 Men's and 1 Women's teams representing the #RedFamily
We are based out of Penistone Reserve in Greenwood, our training days are Tuesday and Thursday nights 4:30pm onwards. We have a fully licensed bar and clubrooms displaying both clubs history.
Our games are played at various grounds the northern suburbs on Saturday (Men's) and Sunday (Women's) afternoons between October to March, if you are interested in joining our club please contact the club registrar or come down to the club on one of the training nights.
The new club prides itself on continuing the great family culture that has seen the clubs thrive, with our alliance with the junior club and great club functions.
