Auckland Cricket, with the support of the club network, are preparing for a full summer season. It is our intent to provide a safe environment for players, officials, and the community to enjoy their cricket first and foremost. This aligns with all planning to this date, and we will work in collaboration with all stakeholders to mitigate any challenges posed through the season.
In addition to the above, we understand that there is the potential that COVID-19 restrictions may affect our summer. If this is the case, we plan to provide guidance and advice to all clubs to abide by all government, Sport NZ and New Zealand Cricket guidelines and protocols, so that we can operate in a safe environment whilst maximising playing opportunities.
We will continue to provide updates on this page, where applicable.
