The Lower Plenty Cricket Club ( LPCC ) was formed in the season 1934-35 and reformed in 1953-54 after cessation of hostilities from World War II. Although steeped in history and cricketing tradition, we are a progressive modern day cricket club with a young senior playing list. Whilst being spiritedly competitive, we are a community minded club fielding a 1st XI side in the DVCA Money Shield competition along with teams all the way to G Grade. Veterans are also catered for with LPCC generally fielding one side. With Level One accredited coaches and a Cricket Operations Group, players are actively encouraged & coached to better their cricket skills. Personal development and leadership mentoring are a big part of the program at LPCC in line with our community ethos. Lower Plenty Cricket Club is a vibrant Junior cricket club believing firmly that our junior girls and boys are vital to the future of our club. We have two distinct streams of junior cricket to suit all ages and abilities. Woolworths Junior Blaster Cricket for 5-8 year olds - learning basic skills in a fun environment and our Traditional Junior Cricket program for 8 to 17 year olds.
