Founded in 1896, the West Australian Suburban Turf Cricket Association (WASTCA) is one of the oldest cricket competitions in WA.
The WASTCA currently has 22 Member Clubs and more than 2,500 players taking part in competitions across the metropolitan area, from Joondalup in the north, to Kalamunda in the East and Murdoch in the south.
The Association is the only competition in the metropolitan area to run both turf and hard-wicket competitions of both one and two day cricket.
In addition to 13 Saturday Competitions, the WASTCA runs a two division T20 competition and a Colts competition over five Sundays throughout the season.
The best players from all Clubs represent the Association as part of the Cricket West Cup, playing five games over the course of the season in three competitions, Seniors, Veterans and Colts. These games attract big crowds as the best of the best tackle each other in T20 matches.
