Buller Cricket to celebrate 150 years
The Buller Cricket Association celebrates 150 years of Cricket on the weekend of the 18/19 November 2017.
A link to www.bullercricket.org.nz the web site has all the details and registration forms.
Cricket first began in Buller in 1866 and the first really organised games took place in 1867. Since then, cricket has always been the major summer sport in the district. For the first 30 years or so cricket operated on a club basis and what we would now regard as inter-Association matches were handled by clubs.
Early in the 20th Century Buller became an Association in its own right and since then has always been an independent District Association and is currently affiliated to Canterbury.
Buller has had three New Zealand representatives in its ranks over the years and has produced a number of provincial reps.
Buller won the Hawke Cup, the pinnacle of District Cricket in NZ in 2015.
Ethnic Cricket Festival to launch in Christchurch
Christchurch Metro Cricket is thrilled to have confirmed the commencement of the first ever Ethnic Cricket Festival in Christchurch.
The make-up of our Saturday competitions is becoming increasingly diverse and we are now providing the opportunity for different community and cultural groups to take part against each other in a sport they are passionate.
The competition will be played on Sunday's from 29 October to 10 December at Hagley Park, with teams playing two Twenty20 games each day.
Entries are invited from all ethnic groups in Christchurch, which will make for an exciting and colorful competition.
Can those representing the Pacific nations get one over those from the sub-continent? Could the European nations show they reign over Africa? Could those from the America's get one over their close rivals from the West indies? Only time will tell.
