Canterbury Cricket was formed in 1877, and is one of six major cricket associations within New Zealand. The association is responsible for the administration of all forms of traditional cricket within the Canterbury region. The Canterbury region, which is the largest geographically in New Zealand includes metropolitan Christchurch as well as five district associations including Buller, Canterbury Country, Mid Canterbury, South Canterbury and West Coast.

Canterbury Cricket has a large number of members and stakeholders, and figures collected at the last New Zealand Cricket Census, player numbers totalled around 22 000 of a national total of just over 100 000.
