Outdoor League Competition
The major thrust of Manitoba cricket is in the outdoor league competition that takes place from May to September. Although most of the games are played at Assiniboine Park [Winnipeg], there are other centers in Winnipeg – Waverley Heights, Elwick Community Center and Gimli.
This league is generally organized in multiple Divisions with teams playing the following:
Premier Division: 50 overs
Division 1 and 2: 45 overs
The winner of the Premier Division earns the right to represent the province in the Western John Ross Robertson Tournament which annually declares the Champion Club in Western Canada.
There is a promotion / demotion process in play as well involving the top and bottom teams in all divisions.
In the regions Brandon [Westman Region] and Gimli [Interlake Region] host games in the summer.
A T20 tournament is played every year for the lower division teams whether time permits.
The Provincial team participates in regular matches in May and early June to get prepared for the National tournament
