Grade Cricket will commence late October. 

Presidents

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

One-day teams or individuals

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 3 pm. Teams organise themselves but must register through the club to enter the Auckland Competition. The T20 competitions commence late October.
