Western Australian Veterans Cricket (WAVC) has been in existence for many years. Various over fifties, sixties and seventies teams have competed successfully in national, international and touring events including World Cups, Test matches and National Championships.

In 2019 WAVC was formally incorporated and became affiliated with Veterans Cricket Australia (VCA) and the WACA.


The overall Vision of the WAVC is: Cricket – A sport for life with the goal of providing maximum opportunities for people to participate in the game of cricket for as long as they wish. An additional goal is to promote the social, physical and mental health benefits of staying involved in cricket, over many years, as a player, club member, volunteer and/or official.

Strategic Plan

A copy of the new WAVC Strategic Plan 2019 - 2022 can be found here. A new Strategic Plan is currently being developed.

Committee Arrangements 

Many years of hard work have been committed by the existing Board to get WAVC to this point. With the new plan and WACA affiliation it felt timely to review the governance structure. A new WAVC committee was endorsed at the AGM in January 2020. Noel Raymond is the new President. The previous President, Rob Sims, is now the President of Veterans Cricket Australia.
