OUR STORY

Queensland Veterans Cricket

In 2008 the first steps to establish Over 60’s Cricket in Queensland were taken by Lew Cooper (QVC Patron) and Kevin Finlay, his NSW colleague hatched a plan to contest an annual Over 60’s Cricket Challenge.

As cricket tragics, each of them mustered a team of Over 60’s players and they met and played their first match in Tenterfield just over the border in Blues territory. QLD fielded a side mainly of ex Sheffield Shield players and had a resounding victory, bring the trophy back to Queensland.

It has been played annually each March, with the 2024 Challenge being played in Port Macquarie and Maitland with two teams from each state in the 40’s ,50’s, 55’s, 60’s, 65’s and 70’s playing. NSW was too good on this occasion.

Ever since 2009 Queensland has been sending a side to the VCA National Championships starting with one Over 60’s side.

Veterans Cricket has grown so much that in 2024 Queensland sent away 19 sides to the National Championships which included our women who won the National Championships.

QVC now has over 1000 registered members, and competitions have started in Regional Queensland at Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns.
