Q. Is it Leeming Spartan or Leeming Spartans?
It is officially Leeming Spartan (singular), as the Club is known as the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club (Inc.).
Colloquially, you’ll hear us referred to as the Leeming Spartans, although this is unofficial and won’t be seen in formal documentation, including this website.
You will see us referred to collectively as Leeming Spartans (plural), although the correct term is simply Leeming Spartan.
To make things even more confusing, you’ll see us referred to as Spartans, which is actually an acceptable term.
Essentially, the Club is Leeming Spartan, but our players are Leeming Spartans.
Interestingly, our website domain is www.spartans.com.au – with a plural for the word spartans.
Q. How do I become a member of the Spartans?
That’s easy! Simply get in contact with us via our phone (0478 982 043 or 0438 005 493) or complete the sign-up form on our Sign Up page! We’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
We’ll need a few bits of information from you and then it is easy as that! If you’ve played cricket previously, we may need to transfer you from your old one (even if it has been up to 5 years since you last played there), and it may take a few days, but other than that, you’re in!
Q. How much is a Spartan membership?
A normal playing membership is $50.00 AUD, (recently reduced from $450!), and will cover you for all the essentials.
With the purchase of your membership, not only do you get to become an official Spartan, but you’ll also receive free hire of our clubhouse for your own personal functions (we have to run the bar due to liquor licensing regulations) all year round!
In addition, you are covered by the Club’s insurance policy meaning if (and we hope it never happens) you get injured, you’ll be covered. Even if you don’t have personal health insurance.
Similarly, you get access to our monthly Player Tea’s (free dinners at the Club), access to the Spartan bar (the cheapest drinks in town), and invitations to any and all functions – with reserved and priority access to our Windup, which sells out at record speed!
Q. Do you offer non-playing membership?
Excellent question, and the answer is a resounding YES!
Introduced in 2016, Spartan Social Membership gives you all the benefits of a normal member (minus the actual playing part of course), and a whole lot more.
From just $70.00, a Silver Social Member receives bar cards, stubby holders, invitations, social member only events, discounts from sponsors, and a whole lot more!
We also offer Gold Social Membership for $100.00, and that entitles you to all of that plus a Spartan formal shirt!
You can learn all about out Social Membership here.
Q. What days do you train?
We train Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 5PM at our clubhouse on John Connell Reserve.
Following that, our Spartan Bar will be open and we also provide fantastic dinner meals, as well as a monthly player’s tea on the house!
All members must wear their official Spartan light-blue Training Shirt. New members of course are exempted, but we do encourage you to wear a light blue or white shirt (the contrast with the red cricket ball and dark shirt makes it hard to see in the evenings).
Q. Do you offer sponsorship opportunities?
Absolutely! We offer an enormous variety of sponsorship tiers, all available to view via our Sponsorship Package.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to our sponsors, which simply put is the best in the association, because we know personally just how important it is to make it a mutually beneficial partnership!
Q. Do you receive sponsorship through goods?
We certainly do! Whilst sponsorship that is of a monetary contribution is one we naturally pursue with greater emphasis, we absolutely would love to partner with you in the form of donations of goods or services!
