These 11 teams and 111 players will join other teams across the two events which feature a blend of 20/20 and 40 over cricket played mainly on grass wickets – the 12 teams in the Mandeveille based event exceeds that venues capacity so the artificial pitch at the nearby Swannanoa Domain will be the 6th pitch used.

The CJCA will have 3 teams in the Festival to be held at Burnside Park and 4 in the Mandeville based event. A feature of our Mandeville teams is the coach of our Year 8 Astle team.
