What if I am having issues with registration?
If anyone has any issues creating or linking their cricket ID or claiming their profiles on the PlayCricket APP, please go to the Cricket Australia Support website and submit a request or call them on 1800 CRICKET. PlayCricket Support Cricket Australia
What if my child wants to play Senior cricket?
For Juniors playing Senior cricket at Nunawading Cricket Club, we ask you to register for Juniors only. The club admin will then submit a season permit in the back end of PlayHQ for those players keen to play Senior cricket. You must let us know if you want your child to play Senior cricket.
What if I want to organise a payment plan or struggling to pay up-front?
No one will miss out on playing cricket at Nuna and we understand that periods of financial hardship are a reality for some families. If you would like to discuss alternative registration options confidentially, please reach out to me (Andrew: 0402 260 545) directly.
How can I request friends that my child would like to play with?
There are no guarantees, but we do try our best to keep friendships groups together. There is also an opportunity to make new friends when you play community sport. We require ALL families to complete the Nuna Junior family contact information form via this link: https://forms.gle/9yvatGTU8kyHPccz6. Please take 10 minutes to fill out the survey to ensure that our records are up to date and help with team planning.
What if I am new to the club and need a playing shirt or merchandise?…or, My child has grown over winter, how do I order a bigger shirt?
All Juniors (Super 7s, Fast 9s, U12, U14, U16 & U18) play in the Nuna kangas playing top, which is a cost on top of the registration fee. You can get your child’s name (first name, surname OR nickname – you choice, up to 8 letters) and choice of favourite number printed on the back of the shirt, all for only $45. There is also a Junior girls/Womens playing shirt, which has a slightly different cut and colours also for $45. All players should also purchase a NCC Playing Cap for $20, if you don’t already have one.
The apparel form is attached, which can be completed and sent back to Glen & Paddy on the emails listed within the spreadsheet. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of personalised tops. If you have any questions, please reach out.

How can I help out?
There are many ways that parents and volunteers can help. You can put your hand up to be Team Manager, help with scoring, ground set-up, shopping for Friday food, cooking on a Friday or join the Junior sub-committee. Let me know if you are interested in helping in any of these ways.
How can I learn how to use the e-scoring system or select teams as a Team Manager?
It would be great to get Team Managers and parent volunteers to register for a Game Day & live scoring training session.
