Burnside West clinched the Christchurch Metropolitan Premiership title in December in a tough battle against Old Boys Collegians. They then went on to defeat top sides from North and South Canterbury to qualify for the 2017/18 nationals.
It is the first time in over 20 years that Burnside's Premier Mens team have taken the Christchurch Metropolitan Premiership, let alone make it in the national competition line up.
Carl Huyser, who is in his first year of captaining the side, said it was "amazing" for his team to break the premiership drought.
"It's no secret that our strength has been our bowling but in saying that, we have a very aggressive batting lineup."
He said he was quietly confident heading into next week's tournament.
"There is going to be quality opposition [in the competition] and conditions that some of us haven't played in yet," Huyser said. "But that's why we play - we play to go and see how good we really are and play against the best."
