About us

We are an incorporated society for regional amateur sport (cricket) whose mission is to provide leadership for the Counties Manukau Cricket Community – ensuring pathways from school to club for all involved.

We are one of six districts that make up the Northern Districts Cricket Association (NDCA). We are also affiliated to New Zealand Cricket (NZC).
Our region spans across all of the former Franklin District, Papakura District and Manukau City (part) and now since the boundaries were redrawn in 2010, includes some of the Waikato and Hauraki Districts.

We serve 12 cricket clubs, 12 secondary schools and 96 Primary and Intermediate schools. The 2020/21 New Zealand Cricket census showed that 8,668 people were involved in organised cricket programmes/competitions across our region. This was a jump of 41% from the previous year.
