Festivals have been held in some of the world’s best tourism, sporting and lifestyle destinations including South Africa, England, Canada, Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

The philosophy has always been the same – to provide an opportunity to travel to different places for a fun week, with like-minded cricket enthusiasts from around the world.

Golden Oldies Cricket is built around the spirit of “Fun, Friendship and Fraternity” however that does not mean that your team cannot play to the best of its ability or to its strengths. The sides you are drawn against will reflect the level of play which you have told us you prefer – ranging from competitive to social and anywhere in between. The difference is there is no overall winner and age is no barrier, other than the fact that you must be 35 years of age or over to participate.

Golden Oldies Cricket is the desire to be part of a team, to dive for the ball, take wickets and go on tour…

The Golden Oldies Cricket movement began in 1984.

The first festival was held in March 1984 in Auckland, New Zealand under the chairmanship of Peter McDermott.

The very first day of Golden Oldies Cricket featured 17 games on the Auckland Domain. A standout feature of the first festival was the number of ex Test players who included: Sam Trimble, Neil Harvey and Ron Archer from Australia; John Edrich and Mike Denness from England; Bert Sutcliffe, Barry Sinclair, Bob Cunis, Bevan Congdon and John Guy from New Zealand.
