Club Otago Lunch March – Warren Lees

Date and Time

Friday the 15th March: 11:45am - 2pm


Glenroy Auditorium

Harrop Street



Warren Lees’ cricketing record is unlikely to be matched.

He played for Otago and New Zealand, he coached the Otago men’s and women’s sides, and he coached the New Zealand men’s and women’s teams.

Warren witnessed Peter Petherick’s hat trick on debut from 22 yards away, he scored 152 in just his third test, he was part of the legendary win over the West Indies at Carisbrook, saw Colin Croft smash into umpire Fred Goodall in Christchurch, and was part of the infamous underarm tour. He led Otago to more championships – first-class and one-day – than any other captain.

His New Zealand team enthused and engaged the country during the 1992 World Cup, and he was close by as the bomb blast in Sri Lanka in December that same year changed the face of New Zealand and international cricket forever.

Warren is our first Club Otago speaker for the year. With the 2019 Cricket World Cup set for the UK in June and July, Warren’s insight into the game – then and now – should not be missed.

Lunch underway sharp at 12.15p.m. Doors open at 11.45a.m. If you or guests have any dietary requirements, please contact [email protected] by 12 noon on Tuesday 12th March. There will be the traditional business card draw and heads & tails, and please bring $10 for the raffle.
