Kia Ora Club Conveners, coaches, managers, and parents,

As we get the 2021-22 season underway this Saturday! We remind all that we need to play cricket under COVID-19 Level 2 guidelines. We appreciate your support with the changes we have made to allow play to continue.

Outfield Cricket Grades have several new parks. These have all been marked in a slightly different way than ‘usual’ so the maps on CricHQ are not accurate. Please look for the painted numbers.

Jellie Park, has been marked in such a way to avoid any interaction with any members of the public playing Disc Golf on the course there. Please advise Cat ([email protected] ) if there are any issues with the set up so they can be changed next week.

Guidelines for play this Saturday 23rd October 2021 and future games until we return to Level 1.
