Cancellations & Defaults

The ground closures and defaults for the Cricket Express Junior Leagues, North Harbour Junior Cricket and Senior Grades will be posted on this page and a link posted on the ACA Facebook page.

For the ACA Junior and Youth Morning Cricket Cancellation Policy, which includes the process to follow for home club coaches/managers to cancel home games, please click here.

We strive to get ground closures posted as early as possible on Saturdays.

Morning grades - 7:00am

Afternoon grades - 10:30am

Coaches / managers if you are unsure if the game is on, we encourage you to use the contact list your club should have provided you, to call the opposition team coach/manager to discuss this. If a mutual agreement cannot be made, the home team manager has final say on pitch condition and playability.  If a game is abandoned, the home team coach/manager must enter the game as abandoned on CricHQ immediately.

If contact cannot be made with an opposition team coach/manager or club manager, contact ACA.  If ACA receives a call from an away team advising they cannot contact the home team coach/manager or club manager at 7am or later, ACA has the ability to deem the fixture as abandoned if ACA believes the weather will not allow a fixture to be played.

If in any doubt, please ensure you arrive at the ground on time to avoid a default.

Auckland Cricket will post all last minute ground closures and cancellations below.
