As the temperature warms and the grass starts to sprout that can only mean one thing, that the cricket season is not far away. The first Saturday in October will see the weeks of pre season preparation come to an end and the serious games commence.
Christchurch Metro Cricket offers cricket for all youth and adult ages and abilities and for both males and females through its affiliated clubs around the City.
For the serious players the top three mens grades offer a combination of One Day, Two Day and Twenty20 cricket. For the more social player, the Cavaliers T20 grade is proving increasingly popular and the 2pm start time caters for players who may be working or enjoying watching or coaching junior cricket in the morning. The afternoon grades also offer a 40 over format starting at 1pm.
