PITCH IN – HELP US GROW THE NEXT GENERATION OF CRICKETERS

Here is your opportunity to support cricket in Canterbury. No matter how small or large your donation, every little bit helps. Planning is well under way to start refurbishing the Sir Richard Hadlee Sports Centre.

It takes a team and we need you on our team. Pitch in. Help us to make our vision come true and ensure Hagley Oval continues to be the best cricket hub in New Zealand. Help all those young cricketers who want to be part of a winning team. They are the future of cricket.

THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT UNDERTAKING – ONE THAT NEEDS WIDESPREAD SUPPORT TO GET OFF THE GROUND.

A nearby training centre has traditionally supported the Hagley Oval facility. This building was used by Canterbury Cricket until 1989, when the Canterbury Horticultural Society took over the building. Now, with a substantial refurbishment, the building is returning to cricket with a renewed focus and revitalised energy. The indoor training centre will cater to all grades of men’s and women’s cricket, from junior, college, club, and age group level to provincial, national and international teams. It will also provide vital space for multi-use, multisport undertakings, ensuring the wider community can gain considerable benefit from this central hub.

Although final costs are currently being obtained we know this for certain: there will be a shortfall in funding.

It is estimated the Trust will need to raise $4m to ensure this vital resource is completed. This project will require great support from the wider cricket community in order to succeed.
