Pres & Coach Rant

Updated September 1st, 2014

Esteemed Wombats! Various factors have prompted me to pump out a spiel of some sort in this section of the (soon to be replaced) website. First of all, the state of our team and its achievements on the playing field....

Curly's Corner ...... Social

Can't bat, can't bowl, can't field? Join the Club mate!! Dunno fine leg from Fine Cotton? Well, kampai cobba, c'mon in! There's more to being a Tokyo Wombat than disgracing yourself on the cricket field.......

Golden Thong ...... Z-file

The Golden Thong? How does a humble piece of footwear become a cricket club's trophy awarded for 'Stupidus Uber Alles'? Fire extinguishers, parachutes, pepper spray and donuts. To learn about some of our more memorable off-field action.

Wyndham Estate

TYPHOON TEARS THROUGH WOMBATS' T20 FINALS CHANCES (10/08/2014)

With Typhoon Halong expected to wreak havoc on the Kanto Plain, the Wombats' LINE group chat was ablaze on Sunday morning. No one really knew what to do until the president entered the discussion with "I'm still heading to Yokohama" followed by the captain's "On my way". I think it's safe to say that a fair few Wombats were hoping the game would be called off so they could stay home in their pajamas and play their Super Nintendos - and maybe other things. Besides, a rained out game was good for us - that would mean automatic progression to the final....right?

WOMBATS SAY NO MORE TO SANO (03/08/2014)

The Tokyo Wombats finally broke the shackles over recent bogey team Sano Cricket Club and completed a 50 run win at the Sano 3 ground on a stinking hot day. Many Wombats starred with the bat and bowl against a weakened Sano team - but took the four points nonetheless.

WOMBATS CHEW THROUGH CHUO (27/07/2014)

The Wombats easily accounted for the students of Chuo University in a Japan Cup T20 game at YCAC. The Wombats were given an early advantage with the scheduling seeing the poor Chuo players have to play two matches back to back in scorching heat in Yokohama. Firstly in the morning they were seen off by the Indian Tigers in convincing fashion and then in the afternoon too seeing them bend over and cop two spankings in a row - and have to pay a hefty fee for the privilege! (I remember seeing something similar in a Chiang Mai report a few years back!).

WOMBATS STRANGLE MAX (19/07/2014)

The Tokyo Wombats romped to a 10 wicket victory over Max Cricket Club on Saturday July 19 at the Sano #1 ground, thereby entrenching their position at the top of the JCL Division I table. Rain threatened to spoil the party for the Wombats in the afternoon midway through the run-chase, but luck (and a nicely controlled batting effort) was on our side this time and the win was sealed for the loss of no wickets.

WOMBATS WIPE FLOOR WITH WYVERNS (12/07/2014)

After surviving the deadly typhoon during the week, we hastily made our way out to Sano, Tochigi, via a variety of modes of transportation. Everyone turned up with no hassles and got set for the battle ahead (shout out to Luke, for driving up with all the club gear).

WOMBATS HUNT DOWN SHARKS AGAIN (28/06/2014)

On a wet morning in Tokyo the Wommies were up at the crack of dawn to take on their old foe -- the Chiba Sharks. Most of us thought the game was going to be cancelled due to the weather and that Dino had just stitched us up saying it was sunny at Fuji because he was so lonely and needed some company, how wrong we were....

WEARY WOMBATS STUFFED BY SANO (31/05/2014)

A confident Wombats team went up to Sano looking for a first victory in the last 4-5 games against the Miyaji family outfit, in fact no one could quite remember when the last win against them was, but all were very sure that were due for a win against the bastards!

WOMBATS NEARLY MAX OUT AGAINST MAX CC (25/05/2014)

Another one of the legendary mini-bus trips to Fuji on a somewhat overcast day. We were all psyched about the match on the back of an unbeaten run so far this season and it's always good to play in Fuji. I'd like to state that we devised a match plan on the eve of the game at Hooters Shibuya, but we all know we don't go there for that.

WOMBATS KICK-START JAPAN CUP CAMPAIGN WITH WIN (04/05/2014)

Well, the Wombats (7/177 from 20 overs) beat the Indian Tigers (100 all out in 14 overs) by 77 runs in their opening game of the Japan Cup T20 competition at the YCAC ground on Sunday, May 4.

WYVERNS WILT TO WOMBAT TENACITY (19/04/2014)

Well, it has been too long since the game for me to remember everything in detail. Between procrastination and work commitments the long awaited report is finally here. It was a memorable day for me in particular as this is where the story started of the "Bag Gone Walkabout" saga. But we all know that story now.

WOMBATS CONFUSE FUJI FOR W.A. AND CULL SHARKS (13/04/2014)

With the Chiba Sharks "holding all the cards" and having a "bowling attack second to none", the Wombats figured they were going to be up against it in this match. However, the (Wom) bat is mightier than the (Chiba) pen (or imagination), and the result was the same as it has been in every clash, bar one, in the history of clashes between these two sides: a Wombat victory, by five wickets.

JOIN THE TOKYO WOMBATS CRICKET CLUB IN 2014!

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 2014, 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.
