Terms 1 and 4 (Summer)

The College Cricket Club is one of the oldest sports at school, with several Old Boys playing for New Zealand. Notable Old Boys include Tom Lowry (first New Zealand test captain) and John Wright.

Coaches are a mixture of College staff, external professionals and parents.

All practice takes place at the Christ’s College cricket ground in South Hagley Park, with the exception of a few teams who train in the artificial nets at College on Upper.

Year 9 teams play either full-day or afternoon cricket, depending on their grade. Other teams play T20 matches starting at 9am or 12.30pm. The top senior sides begin at 10.30am.

House cricket is played in Term 1 for seniors and Term 4 for juniors.

College cricket teams play in several traditional inter-school fixtures in New Zealand and Australia and have regular tours to the United Kingdom. The most recent tour to the UK was in April 2018.
