The Club welcomes and needs new players. You will need to be over 50 by 1 April 2024 to play in the 2023-2024 season (i.e. by the end of the season). If you are, you can play the full season, even if currently only 49.

The 2023-2024 league season of 11 games will start on Sunday 8 October 2023 and end on Sunday 10 March 2024. This season there are no Finals, only a league table. There will be promotion and relegation at the end of the season

The Cricketers’ Club of New South Wales is one of 20 teams that play in a Sunday over 50s “Classics” competition in Sydney this season. Its home ground is Camperdown Park. All games start at 12.15pm in daylight saving time and are 40 overs per side

The 20 teams are divided into two Divisions. CCNSW is in the twelve team Division One. The teams are, in alphabetical order:

Div One [“Foxes”]: Castle Hill, CCNSW, Hawkesbury,  Lindfield, MacArthur, Mosman, Nepean, Old Ignatians, Roseville, Sri Lanka Lions, Strathfield and Warringah

Div Two [“Owls”]: Balmain, Burwood, Georges River, Ingleburn, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, Parramatta RSL and Wenty League

 C.C.N.S.W. has won the competition once in 2015-2016- see photograph below. Last season the League  Premiers were again the Sri Lanka Lions, while C.C.N.S.W. came fifth

Matches are 40 overs per side generally on alternating fortnights to the Masters, and are on turf wickets. Batsmen must retire at 30* (but may return) and bowlers are limited to 9 overs; a sixth bowler must bowl by the end of 30 over.
