Presidents:  For the young at heart over 37 year olds who still want to participate in competitive cricket.

T20 teams: With a Saturday or a Sunday option, T20 is a great competition for those who are unable to commit to a full weekend of cricket. Games usually commence at 3pm. Teams organise themselves but must register through the club to enter the Auckland Competition. The T20 competitions commence late October.
