Parklands Cricket are a junior and social focused, family friendly community club, part of the multi-sport Parklands United Sports Club based at Parklands Reserve, Christchurch. 

In the 2022-23 season, we were one of the fastest growing Cricket clubs in Christchurch, with the lowest junior fees.  The club aims to make Cricket as accessible as possible to all.

While we do offer a senior social program and have senior teams playing social T20 cricket, we focus extensively on our junior programs and tamariki so they get the attention that isn't always possible at clubs with full senior programs. 

We aim to build great cricketers, but focus equally on enjoyment, team culture and belonging, building great community members as well.  Our coaches are volunteer parents and all are supported to ensure they and their players get the most out of their experience at the club.

Off the pitch, we run regular, fun Club Nights and events focused on celebrating our juniors throughout the season (with a bar open for the parents!) and we believe connecting more through these events helps strengthen our club, teams and communities.

Parklands Cricket offers:

  • Saturday morning Cricket (with an additional mid-week practice) for junior teams for Years 0 to 8 (age 5 to 13), playing in Christchurch Junior Cricket Association competitions with games around Christchurch and at our home grounds in Parklands.  Juniors play modified matches suitable for their age, lasting as little as 75 minutes and in most grades all players get an equal turn to bat, bowl and field.
  • A Friday night "Smash Play" programme for 4 - 9 year olds.  This is a great way to get kids involved with cricket and team sport if you can't commit to a Saturday morning game. 
  • NEW for 2023-24, a Thursday evening Senior Social Cricket tournament designed for maximum fun, participation and accessibility to all, with no protective equipment required and no experience needed.
