Veterans Cricket Tasmania is seeking over 60s cricketers to join our squads for upcoming National Carnivals to be held in November.

Their over 70s teams will be playing against all states in Launceston from November 10 to 15. The over 60s will play in the Geelong region from 26 November to 1 December with four matches over five days. Over 40 teams representing all states across five divisions will compete, with most matches played on turf pitches. Tasmania will be aiming to field three sides in divisions 1, 3 and 5.

Over 60s coordinator, Spencer Woolley shared, “We’re inviting players of all abilities to nominate for our teams. Whilst there are still plenty of ‘veterans’ playing in regular competitions, we also encourage those who have been out of the game for a while to give it a go! We’re also keen for new players to join our regular summer roster.”
