JTS Super Series
JT Sparling Super Series
During the season Grafton is involved with a number of other local cricket clubs in a series of representative matches, officially known as the JT Sparling Super Series, or affectionately the "Super Series", or often just "Rep Cricket".
The Super Series competition has arisen primarily from a desire to coordinate interclub fixtures and create more regular and consistent competition between the 5 largest Auckland clubs which will provide the junior cricketers with additional opportunities to play against each other
Held on Sundays, teams from Year 4 to Under 13 are involved in mixed and girls competitions.
The series involves a five-match round-robin competition finishing with a grand finals day towards the end of the season. The 5 clubs are detailed below.
