Cricket Blitz is our afterschool cricket competition aimed at the social to semi competitive cricketer. In Blitz the rules of traditional cricket have been changed to focus on equal participation. All 8 kids in a team will bowl and bat for the same amount of time.
It is free to enter and all the gear is provided! With no need to buy any gear or pay a registration fee the financial burden is reduced for parents.

- Tuesday – Year 11-13 Boys & Year 7/8 Boys

- Thursday – Year 5/6 Mixed & Year 9/10 Girls
Competitions will run 4-6 weeks. The total number of weeks is dependent on the number of entries in your region.
All games will run from 4:00-5:30pm.
The school will need to provide adult supervision at the games. In most regions local cricket clubs will provide an umpire/scorer at each game.
Schools do not need to provide any gear. Local cricket clubs will provide all necessary gear for games.
The competition is completely free. At no point will the school be charged to take part in Cricket Blitz.
Cricket Blitz is played at various school and council grounds throughout Auckland. The venues your school team will play at is dependent on entries. We aim to have Cricket Blitz competitions as localised as possible.
