The Leeming Spartan Cricket Club will be hosting a belated windup to mark the end of the 2019/20 season at our clubrooms on John Connell Reserve on Saturday October 10th – and everyone is invited to attend this FREE event!
With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions it is now possible to hold our 2019/20 windup – and we wanted to make it better than ever so as to best celebrate and reflect upon an incredible season before 2020/21 begins!
Although we had a disrupted end to the year we still had a massive number of moments to celebrate, with great individual triumphs also crucially worth recognising. All trophies and individual awards – including Life Membership – a new Club Legend(!) – Club Person and more will be presented, with the deserving winners to be recognised for their immense contributions over the year.
It may seem like a lifetime ago in the months that have since followed in the wake of COVID-19 causing havoc around the world, but Western Australia’s extremely fortunate position in the way we’ve combated the virus has made it possible for us to proceed with this night of nights!
The 2019/20 Windup will be held at John Connell Reserve on the Bowling Club side on Saturday 10th October 2020 from 1700hrs as we anticipate an enormous turnout at the Spartans.
What’s more is that this will be the first perfect opportunity for everyone to come together following the end of the previous season, as we look to bring down the house in the best way possible and send off the most amazing season in recent memory.
Not only will the season be remembered for COVID-19, but also for the many events and successes at the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club on and off the field. With four premierships to savour – including two in our First Grade for the first time ever, this really was an astounding season to savour.
So please be sure to keep Saturday October 10th free (and most likely Sunday the 11th!) as we celebrate the 2019/20 season one final time at the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club!
Entry & Food All FREE:
That’s right – there are NO windup tickets this year because everyone is invited and it is totally free! The fantastic food package that includes a fully catered three-course meal will be free to all guests and our ridiculously cheap drinks will be available for purchase from our fully-licensed bar!
The decision for free tickets was made on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic because we understand the economic impact that the virus has had on everyone over the past five months.
We understand the economic impact of COVID-19 on our members and as such we made the decision to provide free tickets to all for the windup. What’s more is that we want everyone to be able to come together at the SpartanHQ and not have the hassle of ticket prices to worry about.
The Leeming Spartan Committee also want to absolutely pack the venue (in line with our COVID-19 requirements of course) and therefore want to make our windup as accessible as possible for everyone.
As such we’re moving to the Bowling Club side in the clubrooms because we anticipate a massive crowd, although doors will first open at 1730hrs on the SpartanHQ side for hors d’oeuvres.
The Run Sheet:
The 2019/20 Windup is being held to honour the amazing contributions and performances of the wide-variety of Spartan members, sponsors, friends and players during what proved to be an unprecedented season of cricket.
We think it only right to honour the services of everyone who was brilliant enough to be part of the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club in some fashion this season.
Doors will open at 5PM on Saturday 10th October on the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club side of the John Connell Reserve clubrooms. This is to allow for hors d’oeuvres to be served and for everyone to mingle before we go next door and sit down.
The Windup formalities will officially commence at 6PM this year (an hour earlier than previous seasons) and we will all migrate next door to our tables.
Our MC will then begin the process with a speech to follow from our President Peter Coombs, before dinner will be served free of charge for all in attendance. The night will then see the presentations of all grade awards, milestone achievement awards and individual honours.
Sponsors All Welcome!
As you will see in the coming days, the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club will be unveiling a variety of brand new sponsors of the Club who have crucially come on board to support us during the 2020/21 season – an incredible act of generosity given the current economic climate.
What’s more is that all sponsors from the previous season will be returning – and as such we feel the 2020 Windup will serve as the perfect opportunity to get everyone together and to meet those who are supporting the Club in the most important way possible – both new and returning.
We personally invite all sponsors to come and enjoy our 2020 Windup with reserved tables available also.
Everyone Is Invited!
There’s no doubt about it – we’re expecting a HUGE crowd at our Windup.
Not only are tickets free, but absolutely everyone is invited and it will be the perfect way for us to come together under the roof of the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club and celebrate and reflect upon what has been an amazing couple of months.
Everyone from our players, sponsors, committee, life members, past players, supporters, friends and family are more than welcome to come and enjoy what will be a fantastic night!
With the massive turnout we anticipate, we’ve opted to move the windup next door to the larger bowling clubrooms, which also allows us to best comply with current health department requirements. Even so, it is strongly possible that room may fill quickly, so please be sure to let us know if you plan on bringing friends and family.
Table Bookings & RSVPs
Tables of eight or ten can be pre-booked for those bringing a crowd. Please get in contact with us over Email or on the contact page on our website to let us know if you’d like to reserve a table (and for how many people).

We will of course be adhering to the Stage Four restrictions as outlined by the Western Australian Government and Health Department to ensure that everyone in attendance is COVID-safe.
Seating will be limited to a degree but by having the event on the Bowls Side it allows us to have up to 200 attendees per the spacing guidelines in the larger room.
Additional measures including sanitary products will also be provided to ensure that everyone can attend risk-free for free.
