December Sporting Action

O' Come All Ye Punters, there's a month of festive sport coming up and it's guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit.

Christmas SportDecember is the most wonderful time of the year for cricket fans with the seemingly endless supply of action from the Big Bash League including two matches on Christmas Eve in Hobart and Sydney.

Once the hub-bub of Christmas Day is over and done with settle down for the traditional December 26th Test. Save some space on your busy schedule for two Big Bash games at Perth's Optus Stadium which will be played immediately after!

Remember to bag the best seat in the house on New Years Eve for an epic bang Big Bash clash between the Adelaide Strikers and the Sydney Thunder.

We have to wait until the New Year for the Men's and Women's World Rugby Sevens Series sides to make a merry special appearance in Sydney but the series kicks off in Dubai at the beginning of December and then onto Cape Town, South Africa so plenty of betting opportunities will arise before then.

Sydney to Hobart RaceChristmas is about to arrive for tennis punters with the Brisbane International played on outdoor hard courts in Brisbane and the end of the month marks the start of the action between nations in men's and women's tennis with the Hopman Cup.

Tis the season for Perth Racing Carnival fans with the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes which takes place on Saturday 1st December at Ascot racecourse and the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic which runs one week later.

Finally, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race on Boxing Day, an icon of Australia's summer sport. An event that we are always keen to have a bet on in search of festive fortunes.

We are looking to keeping things rolling in 2019, in the meantime our blog will continue to bring you you up to date with the news and views from the world of sport, politics and more this month. It's a slightly more irreverent section of the site, take a look for a sideways glance at what's going on in the world of betting throughout the festive period.
