Where the whole family can play!
Kalamunda Rangers (Incorporated) provide Teeball, Softball and Baseball to residents of the City of Kalamunda and surrounding districts. Running a club of this size takes a bit of work and we hold regular meetings to organise all the events and competitions. Meetings are open to all members and are held on the second Monday of every month commencing at 7 pm in the clubrooms at Maida Vale Reserve. Attending a meeting is a great way to meet fellow members and find out what is happening in and around the Club.
Located within the City of Kalamunda, Maida Vale Reserve is nestled within the Perth foothills and can be accessed from either Ridge Hill Road or Acacia Road (off Gooseberry Hill Road). ACROD parking is available from the Acacia Road access and there is parking for over 100 vehicles within the Reserve, with many under shade. At Kalamunda Rangers, we have two full sized Baseball diamonds, complete with cutouts and 10 m back net, as well as enclosed batting cages. Our main diamond also has a home-run fence, a running track, as well as permanent dugouts and a scorers’ shelter. Our grounds are acknowledged as some of the best in Western Australia and, in recognition of all the work our groundskeeper has put into the diamonds over the years, our main diamond was named the Andy Maher Field in 2016. In addition to baseball and softball, we also have the ability to create up to 15 Teeball /Softball Diamonds. Our Canteen stocks a wide variety of goods including cooked meals after training or games on most days, and our licenced bar facilities are available for all senior events.
Kalamunda Rangers Inc was originally formed as Kalamunda and Districts Teeball Association, and began its first games in the 1978/1979 Summer Season. All games were originally played at Fleming Reserve in High Wycombe; however, the Club soon outgrew the Reserve and moved to its current location at Maida Vale Recreation Reserve in 1984 and initially set up 6 Diamonds. We changed our name from Kalamunda and Districts Teeball Association to Kalamunda Rangers on 5 May 1989, by which time our numbers had grown to over 1100. Initially the Club started just with Teeball; however, in 1992, Junior Baseball and Softball were also offered. In 1997 the Club approached Baseball WA, with the view to entering in the Seniors Competitions and Under 18s. Approval was granted and the Club fielded teams in both ’F’ Grade and Under 18s (Division 2). A Senior Softball competition was introduced in 2008 and participated in the Hills District Softball Association competition at Pioneer Park before moving to SEMSA in 2009, and introducing a winter Softball competition for juniors and seniors in 2014. Most recently, the 2015 season saw the successful introduction of our Ladies Baseball team. We now have a natural progression right through from Teeball to Senior Baseball and Softball and play all year round.
Throughout the years, there have been a number of members who have rendered outstanding meritorious service to the club and have been elected as Life Members of the club.
