Senior Cricket

 

Birkenhead City Cricket Club is the proud home of eleven senior men’s cricket teams. In the 2021/2022 season we fielded a Premier and Reserve team. A 4th, 6th and 7th Grade side. A One day 3A, 3B, 4A and 4B team as well as a Saturday and Sunday T20 side.

Whether you are looking for a social team to have some fun with, something a little more serious or you are the next Kane Williamson, we have a team for you.

We also have an affiliation with Last Man Stands, which plays a modified 8 a side T20 format on Thursdays at our club. To get involved please reach out.

If you are interested in joining the Birkenhead family, please get in touch with the club manager at office@birkenheadcricket.co.nz. Whether you have just left school or are getting on in years, have played for the last decade or never before, are a native Aucklander, or grew up in Bangalore, we’re sure to find the right team for you and get you out there playing cricket.
