UPDATE SATURDAY 16th March 8am
In addition to the below statement and cancellation issued yesterday evening the CJCA has decided not to proceed with either the Interdistricts matches planned for Sunday the 17th of March and the CJCA Summer Tournament matches. We thank our fellow associations for fully supporting this decision and know that our cricketing family will support this decision at such a difficult time for many people in Christchurch.
Statement from Friday evening 15/3/19
The Christchurch Metropolitan and Christchurch Junior Cricket communities are deeply shocked and saddened with the terrible events that have taken place today.
The Board and Management wish to pass on condolences to the victims of this violence, and to their families and friends as we all attempt to come to terms with the reality of the attacks on our way of life.
Our cricketing family includes a significant number of the Muslim community who enjoy the cricket fields of Christchurch and our thoughts are very much with them.
To this end, all adult, youth and junior cricket in Christchurch is called off tomorrow.
