Junior Cricket Comes to Hagley Oval
- Published on Tuesday, 12 March 2013 01:49
Thanks to a joint venture between Christchurch Metro Cricket and Canterbury Cricket, on Saturday, 18 teams from the Christchurch Junior Cricket Kiwi Year 1 grade will be playing on the outfield of the new international standard ground at Hagley Oval.
This opportunity comes about due to the commitment that Canterbury Cricket has made to ensure widespread community usage of the new oval.
Players from the Old Boys Collegians, Marist Harewood, East Shirley, Halswell, Sydenham, Sumner, Lancaster Park Woolston and Merivale Papanui junior clubs will take to the field at 10am, onto what would be the best quality field they would have experienced in their short careers.
The immaculately manicured outfield will ensure exciting and high scoring cricket will be to the forefront of the day.
The mornings play is nestled in between the final two round robin games in the Ford Trophy for the Canterbury Wizards on the 13th and 20th March.
