Golden Thong ...... Z-file

HARDYS' M.o.M.

Frankie Hart snatched three quick wickets in this friendly fixture to prove his worth and secure a bottle of Hardys wine. The dibbbly dobbly deliveries from the man known as "buckets" were too tempting for many of the opposition's batsmen, who hit them straight into the hands of waiting Wombats.

Wommies Out of the Burrow

Almost 4 years had passed since I left Tokyo to spend time with my father in the final stages of his life. Tough as it was, I will always be glad I made the move....

WOMBATTERED BY SANO (31/08/2013)

Saturday August 31st, Shinjuku platform 8am was the scene of something rarer than an Aussie test win, all Wombats showing up on time and in decent fettle. A disappointing and disconcerting way to start the day so let's make sure this doesn't happen again boys.

BEATH'S ALL ROUND EFFORT WOUNDS WET WYVERNS (27/07/2013)

The Wombats arrived at a pretty stinking hot and humid Sano ground, and although donning the Wombats cap for the first time in four years was a special moment, I hadn't missed the energy sapping Japanese summer one bit. Both teams were desperate to win the toss and bat first, and the Wyverns happily got the better of this particular battle, putting us into field.

WOMBATS BREAK BOKES TO SECURE VICTORY OVER SHARKS (21/07/2013)

The Tokyo Wombats Cricket Club claimed a deserved victory against arch rivals Chiba Sharks on a scorcher at Sano 3, nailing their first JCL win for 2013.

TWCC Vs SANO -- THE BORDERLINE SERIES (01/06/2013)

With two losses already in the bag this season the pressure was on the Wommies to kick-start the season with a first win. No motivation would be needed with the opponents for Round 3 being our rivals from Sano and the victors in controversial circumstances in last year's Granny.

POOR WOMBATS PUNCHED BY PADDY (12/05/2013)

The second fixture of the 2013 JCL division one season did not bode well for the Tokyo Wombats after suffering a heavy defeat to Paddy Foley's Cricket Club at Sano ground number three on Sunday May 12.

WOMBATS OUTNUMBERED, OUTSOURCED, AND OUT, SAUCED (06/04/2013)

It's never something a captain welcomes. Ten players put their hand up, 8 agree to take the team train, 4 show up. It soon became clear that we'd suffered casualties....

2013 CHIANG MAI SIXES TOUR REPORT

Tokyo Dingbats (aka Tokyo Wombats) made another successful trip to Thailand, their 9th tour to the Chiang Mai Sixes. More laughs were had than runs were scored, and more vodka was drunk than wickets taken. Like the Wombats in Tokyo, cricket in Chiang Mai is only part of what we do, but without it we wouldn't be there.

JOIN THE TOKYO WOMBATS CRICKET CLUB IN 2013!

TOKYO WOMBATS are a successful club, having won numerous successive premierships, and played finals' cricket in almost every season. However winning, and even playing, is only part of what we do - or why we do it. It's more about having a laugh, making some mates, getting out of Tokyo. Even if your cricket skills are average at best, join us for a drink.

"There's more to playing cricket than just playing cricket."

There are irregular practise sessions in season, but these are light-hearted affairs. A chance to catch up with mates, have a trundle. The same goes for playing.

We are sponsored by HARDYS WINES of Australia. Their generosity underlines our fund-raising, which helps keep our fees lower than other clubs. HARDYS provides wines for quiz nights, raffles, and on-field awards.

Tokyo Wombats also make annual tours to Chiang Mai (Thailand).

If you want to have a run in 2013, please contact the Club! If you're a non-player and prefer talking and watching over a drink, then drop us a line.

NOTE: We are an AMATEUR club. We DO NOT pay players, hire coaches or sponsor visas from overseas.
