More than 80 men's and women's teams will be involved in the 2018 Beastwear NICL season, with teams competing for a share of $55,000 in prize money as well as national bragging rights.

Games will kick off from April onwards with divisional finals taking place throughout August, ahead of the Beastwear National Indoor Cricket League Finals Series held during the first weekend in September.
Live-streamed games will be hosted on rotation through each State and Territory on each Sunday evening during the competition at 6pm and 8pm AEST, and are available free for viewing via the Cricket Australia Indoor Facebook Page.
The first round was already live last Sunday 15 April from Action Indoor Sports at Brisbane's Victoria Point as the local Vipers successfully took on the Caboolture Snakes in both the men’s and women’s divisions.
The Tasmanian men’s division will this year comprise of five teams.
Returning Tasmanian Division winner Huon & Channel (pictured) will again be a strong outfit, and they are joined by last year’s teams: Hobart South, the Eastern Shore Roos and the Eastern Shore Bombers.
