We plan to grow the next generation of cricketers. But first we need your help.
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 and we are set to start refurbishing the Sir Richard Hadlee Sports Centre in April 2019 but as you know one player cannot win a match.
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.
We checked with the last tenants, and it has been confirmed – money doesn’t grow on trees.
The asking rate. What is needed.
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. This figure will need to be made by mid-April, 2019.
Time is fast running out.
