How can I get picked for matches? And where will I be selected?

Getting picked for matches

To be selected to play in matches, you need to declare your availability via the Pitchero Club app or website.

Via the app
On the bottom bar of the app, select the calendar icon. This will bring up “My Schedule” – a list of all the matches (and training sessions) that are relevant to your squad/XIs.
Go through the list and set availability for each date by clicking “Set Availability” and selecting “Available” (or “Not Available”, as the case may be).

Via the website
Log in to the Blackheath Pitchero website, go to “Your Account” on the top right hand side, and click on “Your Account”. At the next page, select “Schedule” at the top. This will bring up a list of all the matches (and training sessions) that are relevant to your squad/XIs, separated out on a month-by-month basis.

Go through the list (clicking top left to advance to future months) and set availability for each date by clicking “Set Availability” and selecting “Available” (or “Not Available”, as the case may be).

Please note that it is your responsibility as a player to declare your availability. If you don’t, you won’t be chased, and teams will very likely be selected without you in them!

Therefore it is prudent to set your availability well in advance. If you know your plans, there is nothing to stop you declaring availability for the whole season, and many members do so. You can always update your availability at a later date in the event of an injury etc.

Our approach to selection

Blackheath is committed to selecting teams on merit, without allowing favouritism or cliques, and with the intention to win as many games of cricket as possible each season. We put a lot of effort into ensuring that newcomers and young players are integrated into the club and that all members have opportunities to progress if they perform on the pitch.

Weekly selection is the responsibility of each team's captain, under the guidance of the selection committee, which is comprised of the club chairman, the captains, and the junior co-ordinator. Once they have made themselves available, every member is expected to play wherever selected.

Our promises to members are:

• We will select teams on merit, without allowing favouritism or cliques.
• Newcomers and young players will be warmly welcomed into the club.
• You will be offered opportunities to progress if performing well on the pitch.
• Captains will clearly communicate your role in the side to you.
• If you make yourself available for both Saturday and Sunday, you are guaranteed a place in any Sunday friendly XI, if not selected for a Saturday League XI.

Further information on selection and the selection process is contained in the attached PDF.

If you have concerns about selection, please speak to your captain in the first instance. If you are not satisfied with the response, you are welcome to contact the club chairman, Vic Kandampully.
