Veterans Cricket

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.

Vision

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 2019-2022

A copy of the new WAVC Strategic Plan 2019 – 2022 can be found here.

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. The goal is to have a new WAVC committee endorsed at the next AGM in January 2020. Rob Sims is the current WAVC President.

State Teams and Competitions Information

There are numerous opportunities to play Veterans Cricket in WA through existing competitions overseen by Cricket West, WA District Cricket Council and the many metropolitan and regional cricket associations and clubs. There are other current and emerging opportunities for players to continue their enjoyment. For contacts related to the opportunities outlined above see the table below.
