There are many reasons that sportspeople come out of retirement. Some want a shot at another title, others feel fitter than ever.
And then there's Albion Park Rail's Trent Healey.
Every Saturday, Healey hops in the car with his four teenage sons to represent The Rail Cricket Club together.
Keelan (16 years old), Connyr (15) and twins Ethan and Rowan (13) play alongside their dad in The Rail's fourth grade side.
Together, the five Healeys form nearly half of the team. Connyr usually bats at number three or four, Keelan and Ethan are part of the middle order while Trent and Rowan come late in the order. The Healeys usually share around bowling duties.
So how did the family end up playing cricket together?
"The boys were playing together for The Rail and all I was doing was sitting in the car for three or four hours watching them," 46-year-old Healey said.
"I played cricket years ago but I thought 'hell, I'll come out of retirement'. So I joined them and the rest is history.
"We've played about four games together now. I give it to the kids and they give it back to me. They call me old, and say I can't run. And I talk about having experience in return. It's good banter. They love it and it's great fun."
Healey grew up in Albion Park Rail and played junior cricket for his local club.
He left the Illawarra in his teenage years but decided to return when he was ready to settle down.
Healey said his family was proud to represent The Rail together.
"For me, it's about bonding with my kids," he said.
"Not many fathers get to play cricket with all of their kids and I consider myself lucky that, at 46, I can still play the game with them."
The Rail Cricket Club president Simon Pearse said the Healeys were a great example of them being a "very proud family club".
"We're particularly proud of the young kids. The twins are only 13 years old and they're playing fourth grade cricket," Pearse said.
