New Zealand Over-50s Cricket

Welcome to the website for New Zealand Over-50s Cricket.

 

The 2020/21 season is starting to take shape, with various events being planned (see Calendar below). Uncertainty regarding the "Trans-Tasman Bubble" means that we cannot confirm any matches or tournaments involving Australia at the moment. However, there will be plenty of domestic over-50s cricket in New Zealand.

 

The Inter-Provincial Tournament (IPT) is being planned for early January in Auckland.​ This will see the top 4 sides in the country (Auckland Cavaliers, Districts Evergreens, Wellington/Tasman Firehawks and Canterbury/Otago Mainlanders) compete over 4-5 days. Also, another national tournament is being arranged in Wellington, probably in February or March, for players who do not make their IPT teams. There will also be several inter-province matches, mainly ahead of the IPT. 

Finally, we are planning a series of North Island/South Island matches.

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