Cricket is a sport for life with the goal of providing maximum opportunities for people to participate in the game of cricket for as long as they wish.
The Over 40s League is a platform initiated by Cricket Namibia to accommodate 40 years and older cricket lovers to keep playing the game. The Over 40s League aims to develop veterans cricket and identify players who can represent Namibia in the future Over 50s World Cups.
Cricket Namibia participated in the Over 50 World Cup as an invitational side this year in Cape Town, of which CN saw the need to create a local platform, the Over 40s cricket competition. This will be a platform that will develop and prepare players for international cricket opportunities.
