Wairarapa Cricket Association is one of the smallest cricket districts in New Zealand. But it is one with a proud history. Formed in 1894-95, Wairarapa Cricket currently has four active senior clubs – Lansdowne, Red Star, Marist Old Boys, and Greytown (which is the second oldest cricket club in New Zealand). The senior competitions are complimented with the inclusion of teams from Wairarapa College, Rathkeale College, and Kuranui Old Boys. In the junior section we have representation from all of the above as well as Martinborough, Carterton and East Coast.

Locally we run four levels of competition, Premier where teams battle it out in Two Day and One Day competitions on Saturdays and the T20 competition on Thursday evenings, Second Grade where there is a One Day competition which splits into two sections after a full round of competition and also a T20 competition.  At secondary schools level we run a Junior competition.  A number of our secondary school teams play in our senior and open grade competition.  Junior Cricket (JCB)  is played at three levels, Kiwi and Incrediball on Fridays and Hardball on Saturdays.

As well as local competitions we are proud of the success our small district produces in the representative arena with teams competing at Senior Hawke Cup and Chapple Cup level down through development sides, under age teams and junior.  Wairarapa has had three periods of holding the prestigious Hawke Cup – the main trophy for district cricket. Firstly from 1920-21 to 1921-22, then again in 1950-51, and finally from 1976-77 to 1978-79, withstanding seven challenges.

Our new restructured website has been put together as a central point for all Wairarapa cricket clubs, schools and social players to be able to check draws, send in results, view competition points and read news reports about rep matches, club games, inter-schools, special fixtures, our sponsors, coaching and development and any other information related to cricket in the Wairarapa.

We also hope that the website will be useful for visitors from outside the district wishing to find out cricket information from the Wairarapa District, whether it be history, contact details, or seeing who is performing in the local club and representative teams.
