MCA Wet Weather Procedures


The following information has been taken from the Mercantile Cricket Association website in relation to wet weather procedures:


The MCA is committed to getting games played each week.


Our policy is if in doubt, turn up. If you have big doubts, call the MCA Wet Weather line after 9:45am on match days:

1900 939 238 (44c/min, higher from mobile/payphones). 

The advice may be that players and umpires are to reports to grounds, or the match has been abandoned, or rescheduled to another day, or moved to another ground.


If no pitch has been prepared, clubs are required to call the Match Secretary Alec Kahn on 0410 938 191 before 9am on match days. 

If the pitch is prepared, but in the opinion of the home side will be unfit for play, then the home side is required to contact Alec Kahn, and only with the agreement of the opposition captain can the game be called off.
