Playing history[edit]

South Western Districts have taken part in the Provincial Three-Day Challenge and Provincial One-Day Challenge competitions since the 2006-07 season. As of late November 2013 they had played 74 first-class matches for 24 wins, 27 losses and 23 draws[2] and 60 List A matches for 26 wins, 33 losses and one tie.[3]

They actually played their inaugural first-class match in the Currie Cup in 1904 at Mossel Bay against Western Province[4] but did not play another first-class match for 102 years.

The South Western Districts Cricket Board was granted associate status by Cricket South Africa in 2004, and upgraded to full affiliate status in 2013.[5]
