CCNSW at the Over 60s World Cup

CCNSW was well represented at the recent Over 60s World Cup in Chennai, with Stu Ridge and Bill Blair in the Australian Over 60s side and Sittampalam Ragavan in the Sri Lankan team.

Australia beat England in the final to take out the championship and Sri Lanka finished 4th in the 12 team tournament.

Bill Blair was selected in the team of the tournament.

The Cricketers’ Club of New South Wales (www.ccnsw.com) plays on excellent turf wickets with full covers at the attractive tree lined ground at Camperdown Oval with a village green atmosphere just off Parramatta Road in Mallet Street. The ground has full facilities including covers, sightscreens, a supersopper, and a new pavilion, which includes an air conditioned canteen, change rooms and showers. Adjoining the ground on one side is a café and on the other side a licensed restaurant called “Camperdown Greens”
