The 9th National Over 60s Cricket Championships was played from 8 - 13 November on various grounds, primarily in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Twenty-six over 60s teams took part in four divisions while another eight teams played in the over 70s competition so it is a big event.

All in all it was another successful carnival. Queensland won the Over 70s competition and New South Wales won the second, third and fourth divisions of the Over 60s. Congratulations to Vic Country 1 for winning the First division. Vic Metro 1 came a credible fourth. Generally the games were played in good spirit - a feature of over 60s cricket - though unfortunately a few of the New South Wales 1 players appeared to have forgotten about sportsmanship when they played Vic Metro 1. The Championship dinner at Sandown Race-course provided a sociable ending to the 9th Over 60s Cricket Championships. We look forward to attending the 10th championships in Hobart next November.
