New Zealand Over-50s Cricket

Welcome to the website for New Zealand Over-50s Cricket. Here you can find details on the past, present and future of over-50s cricket in New Zealand.

 

Our History page goes through the 3 years of NZ over-50s cricket, starting with the Australian tour of NZ in February 2018, right through to today. We have profiles on all the players who have represented New Zealand and our Statistics page keeps track of the leading run-scorers, wicket-takers, etc., both at international and domestic level.

Our Calendar (below) lets you know what is coming up (and recently completed).

 The 2021/22 Inter-Provincial Tournament (IPT) will be held in Blenheim in January (5-10).​ This event will see the top 4 sides in the country (Auckland Cavaliers, Districts Evergreens, Wellington/Tasman Firehawks and Canterbury/Otago Mainlanders) compete over 5 days. Auckland are the defending champions, while Wellington/Tasman won in 2019/20.

It is hoped that the IPT will include 2 divisions this season, with each of the 4 above-mentioned regions entering two teams.

Plans are afoot for trans-Tasman tours, involving the full New Zealand side, as well as New Zealand "A" and New Zealand "B". 

 

New players are always welcome. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jim Morrison at over50sworldcup@gmail.com. Kindly provide your date of birth, club affiliation and brief details about your cricketing background.
