Your female cricket club of choice

There is one club in Christchurch, New Zealand, that caters for all girls and women wanting to play cricket.  

  • Do you have a daughter at primary or intermediate school who wants to see if they enjoy cricket ? 
  • Are you  a female at high school or working and looking for a friendly female cricket club to join ?
  • Are you a woman just looking to play cricket socially  ?
  • Are you competitive and keen to play women's cricket with Canterbury and NZ players ?

Well look no further than centrally based St Albans Cricket Club 


St Albans Cricket Club is based centrally at Hagley Park with our clubrooms looking across the new Hagley Park International Cricket ground. Our Premier women's   homeground is in Hagley Park - right next to where the womens final of the world cup was in 2022.  

Saints has the proudest record of any NZ club. Our women and girls have won over 100 womens titles since 1938 - including 40 titles by our Premier Women.
