The ground closures, ground changes and defaults for the Cricket Express Junior and Youth Leagues and Senior Grades will be posted on this 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 / cancellations posted as early as possible.
Mid-Week T20 Grades - will be posted by 12:00pm on the day of the game.
Morning Grades - will be posted by 7:00am on Saturday morning.
Afternoon Grades - will be posted by 10:30am on Saturday morning.
Sunday T20 Grades - will be posted by 12:00pm on Sunday.
Coaches / managers / captains 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 / captain 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 / captain must enter the game as abandoned on CricHQ immediately.
If contact cannot be made with an opposition team coach / manager / captain or club manager, contact ACA. If ACA receives a call from an away team advising they cannot contact the home team coach / manager / captain or club manager at 7am (for morning games) and 10am (for afternoon games) 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.
Due to Auckland moving into Alert Level 3, all games scheduled for Sunday 28th February are cancelled.
