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 Kindly provide your date of birth, club affiliation and brief details about your cricketing background.
