The Ringwood and District Cricket Association (RDCA) was formed in season 1920/1921 and continues to foster grassroots cricket and community involvement in local sport.

Located in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, the Association covers a large geographic area and is a member of the Victorian Metropolitan Cricket Union (VMCU) which in turn reports to Cricket Victoria. The Association's member clubs cater for male and female participants of all ages with Junior, Senior and Veterans competitions that are administered by separate committees that in turn report to the Board of Management. 

Over the 2018/2019 season, the RDCA are looking to support beyondblue’s anxiety, depression & suicide prevention services by encouraging clubs to fundraise within their communities.  We want to encourage clubs to start that conversation about mental health and look after their mates, because “Talking About Mental Health Is The Game Changer”

Beyond Blue

Many of us have been affected by anxiety and depression, either personally or through family, friends or colleagues. Right now, over 1 million people in Australia experience depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety. On average, 8 people take their lives every day in Australia.

Beyond Blue’s vision is for all people in Australia to achieve their best possible mental health.

The funds and awareness you raise will help us enormously as we work to support people to protect their mental health and to recover when they are unwell, reduce people’s experiences of stigma and discrimination, and improve people’s opportunities to get effective support and services at the right time.

With your support, we will continue to innovate and deliver new services and programs, distribute free information resources and share powerful stories of hope and recovery across Australia, fund world-leading research, roll out evidence-based campaigns and advocate for all people in Australia affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.

Your support will also help us keep up with demand for our 24/7 phone and online Support Service – which is staffed by mental health professionals and provides life-saving support to hundreds of people every day.
