Thank you to our amazing sponsors, the  amazing performances achieved on the field by the teams at our club is only possible due to the great support and sponsorship we are fortunate to receive at Kensington.

 In bringing home 6 premierships to the club, the Club championship, Umpires award as well as Sarah Lowe winning the Karen Rolton award, another brilliant season for the Browns.

Even though the business economy has been more challenging we have been able to have continued support from so many companies of which we are very proud to be associated with.


David Harford and the team from Northline Freight Management continued their great support for the club and even though David spends a lot of time travelling the world with business he still keeps up to date with all the Browns results.David is also one of the clubs Vice Presidents.


The Feathers Hotel have been superb again in their support even though they have been rebuilding their own home facility over the summer and how good is the new extension. It is outstanding and the updated Pavilion is always packed out.Thanks to Shaun Matthews and the team for their great friendly service. A night out at the Feathers is a real fun night!


The team at Klemich Real Estate continued their great support of the Browns through being a major partner as well as joint owner ,Steve Alexander making himself available to auction off our heaps of items that we had on offer at our fundraising night with special guest Kim Hughes during the season. Thanks to Steve Alexander, Matt Smith and Oren Klemich, these guys know how to sell real estate. Another outstanding South Australian company that continues to win Real Estate awards because they are one of the best in the business!! 


 The major fundraising night at the club for the season was another huge success with special guest former Australian Test Captain Kim Hughes. Kim spoke brilliantly, was very entertaining and stayed all night for photographs and autographs. Well done to Patrick Connelly, Mary Read, Jane Lowe and Greg Slack for organising such a successful event. Everyone who attended had a great night and the club made some money as well thanks to the skill of auctioneer Steve Alexander and the generosity of our guests. Can’t wait for next seasons BIG night near the Adelaide Test Match. These are must attend evenings at the club.


The Balfours brand is one of South Australia’s oldest and best and we have been very excited to have them as part of our team again at Kensington. We proudly wear the logo on all of our playing outfits and love eating the magnificent product from one of our key partners.


Myles Pope is an outstanding IT man. Myles from MLPA is responsible for the updating of all the information and design of our website . He has created a system whereby the website is able to have a team of contributors to the information about all elements of the club. This is also where we promote and share our formation about each of our sponsors on the website, through the Twitter feed and Facebook.

What a legend he is, so well regarded by everyone that knows him, he is a true gentleman and an outstanding cricketer with a season highlight being a record 174 when batting for the LOAs.We are delighted to have Jamie and Ayesha as part of the Kensington team.

It is situated near to Melbourne but it is certainly worth the trip as the place is magnificent. Thanks to former Brown, Patrick Baird for his continued generosity.

Welcome to the February edition of the Burnside Physiotherapy Newsletter.

Happy New Year from the team at Burnside Physiotherapy. We hope you all had a wonderful break.

New Massage Therapist

It is an absolute pleasure having Bindi with us at Burnside Physio. She is available for 30 and 60 minute remedial massages on Friday afternoons from 1-6pm. Her massages are claimable with your health fund and use a different pool of funds to the Physio Consults. You might find our Physios discussing the option of massage with you if it would be beneficial. Doris and Amy are still doing massages throughout the remainder of the week if Friday pm does not suit. 



Doris – Pilates Course Level 2

In December Doris attended her second Clinical Pilates course in Melbourne. She learnt a different way of prescribing Pilates exercises and caught up on the latest core stability evidence. It has been a great opportunity for us all to keep learning as she has since passed her new knowledge onto us. We are always eager to keep learning and improving our skills so we can help you with the most effective management.

Pilates Socks

As you would hopefully have seen and heard, we are now using Pilates socks with grip on the soles in our classes. We want to thank you all for getting on board with the change like you have. If you do not already have the socks you are welcome to bring your own or purchase a pair from the front desk for $4. If you forget your socks during the week we will have spares that you can borrow and put in our washing after the class. Please talk to our staff if you have any queries.



NDIS Rollout

TThe NDIS is still rolling out across the state. By July 2018 it is expected that all age groups across the whole of SA will be covered by the scheme. It currently covers children up until the age of 17. Adults aged between 18 and 64 will have access from July 2017 based on where they live, beginning with northern metropolitan areas. For more information talk to your doctor or go to the NDIS SA website.


Plantar Fasciitis


Many people suffer from pain in the heel that is worse with prolonged weight bearing and in the initial steps after rest. In most it starts due to a period of greater than usual activity, a change in shoes or change in walking/running surface. Plantar fasciitis is a condition where the tendon or fascia that inserts into the heel becomes weakened and inflamed in some cases.
The evidence is always developing and shows that Physiotherapy treatment is very effective for plantar fasciitis. It is certainly the first option before more invasive techniques. Our first aim is to reduce the pain by releasing all the tight muscles and joints of the foot that put the heel insertion under greater stress. Taping the foot is also very effective in the first week(s) to let the foot rest while doing life as usual. Braces and supports can be helpful for some. We teach you how to help manage the pain yourself with stretches and massage.

Many people with plantar fasciitis try resting the foot, using braces, avoiding walking/running and using anti-inflammatory creams or medication. This usually eases the pain until they start their usual activity again. Rest will reduce the pain but it will not strengthen the fascia. The fascia needs to be very gradually strengthened, too quick and there will be another flare-up. This can take some time (months) and requires a lot of patience. Our Physios look for any contributing factors such as poor foot posture and calf weakness and set up a management plan to correct these in combination with the gradual strengthening. If you or anyone you know is struggling with heel pain feel free to talk to us or book an appointment with our Physios. It is known that earlier treatment gives quicker recovery. Unfortunately waiting for it to get better doesn’t typically work for heel pain.

Christmas Period Closures

As Christmas is fast approaching we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We hope you enjoy the holiday period and stay safe on the roads when you travel. Thank you for supporting us throughout the year.

Closed 25th Dec (Sun) to 2nd Jan (Mon). We will be open again as normal on 3rd of Jan (Tue).




We are very happy to announce that we have a Remedial Massage Therapist who will begin work in the new year. Bindi Rice trained at the Australian Institute of Fitness and received awards for academic and hands-on excellence in Remedial Massage. She is able to provide myofascial and trigger point release, deep tissue massage, pre/post sport massage and general mobility maintenance. Regular massage is fantastic for many people as a maintenance treatment to keep moving and pain free. Massages with Bindi will be claimable with your health fund. Many health funds have a separate amount set aside for remedial therapy so it is worth checking and using. 

To welcome Bindi to our practice we will have our monthly massage special in January 2017


Advanced Dry Needling

Amy recently completed her Level 2 Dry Needling course which now allows her to perform more advanced techniques in more areas of the body. Below we have listed some of the new areas that Amy can needle and the conditions they can help.

  • Scalp for headaches and tension
  • The face for sinus congestion and headaches
  • The TMJ and surrounding muscles for jaw pain
  • The side/front neck muscles for neck pain/stiffness
  • Inner thigh and anterior hip for hip/groin/leg pain
  • The feet for plantar fasciitis, neuromas, joint pain, and other tendon injuries
  • The heel/Achilles tendon for heel and Achilles pain
  • Scar tissue 

We always use Dry Needling as a tool in a wider treatment plan and we always discuss this option with you first before proceeding. Feel free to ask us any questions you have about Dry Needling and if it could work for you.


NEW SAFETY POLICY – Pilates socks

From January 1st we will be asking clients in our Pilates and Balance classes to wear socks with grip on the soles. We are introducing this new policy to maximise client safety and hygiene when using the equipment.
We will have socks available for purchase from reception for $4, or you may supply your own. We will continue to discuss this with you all in this transition period.



Christmas Raffle

As usual we have filled our front office with goodies to the point that we can hardly see Kas and Jude behind the desk. Our Christmas soaps and candles are back and we also have a range of delicious Almond Bread and Meringues from a local business, Dolce Classico.
Finally, we have put together a Physiotherapy Hamper of useful bits to the value of $175. We are selling raffle tickets for $2 until mid-December with proceeds of the raffle going to the Leukaemia Foundation. The hamper includes a ½ hour massage voucher, wheat bag, Flexice hot/cold pack, back roller, lumbar support D-roll, hoteze pads, spike ball and fisiocrem. We greatly appreciate all the support we have received already for this cause.

Well done to the committee who have organised a defibrillator at the club. Lets hope we never have to use it, but it is there just in case anyone needs it.

Mary Read once again organised this and there will be a First Aid night to demonstrate how to use it in the near future.

In the meantime, I noticed there are instructions to follow.

This afternoon we say goodbye to one of the great people from the Kensington Cricket Club in David Parkinson, known to all as DH.

His achievements have been extraordinary in business ,on the sporting field and as a volunteer across a wide range of roles at the Kensington Club. David’s most recent role has been as patron of our club.

An enormous supporter of the Browns and he loved to watch the cricket from the clubrooms at Parkinson oval. David ‘s three sons in Sam, Paul and Tom all played at the Kensington club as well.

David’s name is all over the honour and achievement boards in the club with life membership and batting awards. He has been a pioneer in the sporting industry and a remarkable part of the history of the Kensington Cricket Club.

The Kensington community sends their warmest regards and best wishes to all of David’s family, we will all miss DH.

Good afternoon,


Just to clarify some details from the messenger article ,another Kensington player Lucas Froude is actually the captain of the PAC team but was away with the state U17 at the time of the photo and therefore PAC and Kensington’s Hamish Porter stepped in to the role as captain for the photo.  


Here is another great article from the Messenger paper this week highlighting the fact that 5 of the First 11 School captains have played or are currently playing at Kensington.


All of them have developed their cricket through our junior system and are flourishing for their schools.


We have Dylan Smith from Rostrevor College, Lucas Froude from PAC,Sam Carruthers from Pembroke,James du Preez from Adelaide High and Eddie Steele from Scotch College.


The Messenger Bowl School series is very prestigious and starts this Saturday.


Good luck to all the teams.
