Representative cricket will return this weekend with the Murrumbidgee Twenty20 competition set to take centre stage in Griffith on Sunday.
Griffith coach Tim Rand was pleased to see the representative season getting underway given there had been concerns if they would be senior representative cricket this season.
"It has been a bit funny because we aren't too sure if we should start planning especially the Hedditch Cup," he said.
"It is good to see that the Twenty20 is going ahead this year after it didn't go ahead last year. It has been good to see the other associations get on board to get this one happening.
"Hopefully we might be able to get Hedditch Cup underway in a months time as well."
As for the Griffith side, Rand was pleased to report that there had been a solid squad to pick from for this weekend's tournament.
"We have a good squad together with a good mix of senior players and junior players," he said.
"I think we had a squad of about 24 or 25 which is good, so there has been a fair bit of interest in rep cricket this year.
"It is just expanding on last year, and I'm sure it will be another good season."
As for the leadership group, Rand was pleased to have Theo Valeri as captain and Haydn Pascoe as vice heading into the season.
"They are the best two cricketers in town, so it is good to have them on board," he said.
"It is good to see they are buying into what we are trying to do in trying to get Griffith Cricket successful."
This weekend also doubles as the selection trial for the Murrumbidgee Rangers for the Regional Big Bash which will be played in Wagga at the start of November with the Rangers scheduled to take on ACT Aces.
