Dear All,

As you may know we are holding an 0ver 50s Cricket World Cup which will be conducted in Sydney 2018 from 21 November to 5 December 2018 (please see Over 50s World Cup Brochure in the menu above). 

In addition there will be 2 Over 50s Ashes games between England and Australia following the World Cup on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 December 2018 at Sydney venues to be decided.

In this regard please note the following:

1) There are 8 countries participating in the 0ver 50s Cricket World Cup: AUSTRALIA; ENGLAND; WALES; CANADA; SOUTH AFRICA; PAKISTAN; NEW ZEALAND and SRI LANKA. All have confirmed and are presently paying their deposits. A draft of the playing brochure is attached. You are cordially invited to attend  the opening and closing functions and we would love to see you at the games.

2) The South African team's 050s World Cup Cricket Manager Roger Moult has requested some extra South African players who may be living in Australia to assist them in their quest. If you know of any South African born 0ver 50s players who you know are over 50 as at 31 December 2018 and may be interested to play for South Africa in some of their games please contact the undersigned.

3) The Australian 0ver 50s team will be selected from National trials held in Brisbane from 7 - 10th October 2018. If anyone in the 50 - 60 years age bracket in the Sydney Masters/Classics competitions wishes to play and be considered for selection, please contact Mark Bury on 0400485878 or  mark.bury@bigpond.com asap.

4) We are seeking the assistance of Volunteers of any age who wish to contribute to the success of the 0ver 50s Cricket World Cup (please see Over 50s World Cup Volunteer's Brochure in the menu above). Volunteers please contact Mark Bury on 0400485878 or mark.bury@bigpond.com. 

5) In addition there are SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES ranging from modest cash sums to product supplies which we urgently need to make the tournament an even greater success. This is an opportunity to give something back to our great mature age game. The official sponsorship package will attract benefits attached to the Over 50s Cricket World Cup and we would be more than pleased to discuss these with you asap. 

6) The tournament will have its own Facebook page. Please go there and "Like" it so that you can get updates on the World Cup. Feel free to leave your comments and feedback as well.
