The WCA is proud of the standard of playing facilities it is able to offer. A number of grounds are used around the wider Wairarapa District for all levels of the game, supplied both via local councils, as well as private (mainly school) facilities.
Queen Elizabeth II Park Oval
The Home of Wairarapa Cricket, QEII Oval has a new 6-strip pitch block of Patumahoe Clay built in the 2015 off-season. The pitch block caters for Representative, Senior Mens and Womens and Junior Saturday morning cricket. Friday night junior matches are also played on purpose cut strips on the Oval outfield.
Greytown Memorial Park
The Home of the Greytown Cricket Club. Greytown Memorial Park has a grass pitch block which caters for Senior Club cricket and Junior Saturday morning cricket. Friday evening Junior fixtures are played on strips mown into the Park outfield.
