The Club welcomes and needs new players. This season, you will need to be over 40 by 1 April 2024 (i.e. by the end of the season). If you are, you can play the full season, even if currently only 39.
The 2023-2024 league season of 11 games will start on Sunday 24 September 2023 and end on Sunday 17 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 40s “Masters” 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”]: Auburn, CCNSW, Epping, Hawkesbury, Ingleburn RSL, Lindfield, Old Ignatians, Roseville, Ryde Pirates, St Clair, Strathfield and Warringah
Div Two [“Owls”]: Balmain, Burwood, Castle Hill, Lane Cove, Macarthur, Mounties, Northbridge and Schofield
C.C.N.S.W. has won the competition once in 1996-1997. Last season C.C.N.S.W. finished sixth – and the Premiers were again Strathfield.
Matches are generally played on alternating fortnights to the over 50s Classics, and are on turf wickets. Batters must retire at 40* (but may return) and bowlers are limited to 9 overs; a sixth bowler must bowl by the 30th over.
