The competition runs from the first Saturday of October through until finals at the start of March and clubs are always looking to recruit new players.
The Association was established in 1978 as an alternative for players to the ACTCA (Australian Capital Territory Cricket Association-District Competition). The Association conducts the Men's Hard Wicket Cricket Competition in the ACT. With around 40 teams from 20 clubs competing in 5 Grades on Saturday afternoons, it is one of the premier Hard Wicket Competitions outside of Sydney. The Competition is played on a One Day basis (45 overs per side), using Test Match Rules.
