A Horsham Cricket Association Twenty-20 Masters tournament featuring the competition’s stars from yesteryear will start under lights at Horsham City Oval on February 4.
The competition, developed through a Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly program to encourage people back into sport, will feature Jung Tigers, Horsham Saints and Lubeck-Murtoa teams.
The tournament will run for six consecutive Saturday nights, excluding the Labour Day weekend.
Each team will play three games.
The competition is also open to any past, present or new cricketer aged 40 or older. The masters cricket tournament represents the start of a regional masters program.
Assembly executive officer David Berry, in announcing the masters concept in mid-2016, said the idea was to target people who might have retired from their favourite sport to manage or coach, and give them a chance to rekindle their desire for participation.
He said at the time: “We know there are master-level cricketers already propping up lower-grade teams.
“There are many people who no longer play who might still be capable of participating against players of a similar age.”
The initial idea was to expand the cricket program beyond the Horsham association to include players from neighboring associations.
The cricket matches will start at 6.30pm.
People keen to be involved can call 5382 4599 or email matthewf@wrsa.org.au.
