The Hawke's Bay Cricket Camps were established in 1979 and organised by Ray Mettrick.  Ray ended his 22 years in charge in 2001 and since then they have been organised by Hawke's Bay Cricket Association.

They have been a very successful breeding ground for a number of first class and New Zealand cricketers with Ross Taylor, Jamie How, Jeetan Patel, Jacob Oram, Jesse Ryder, Mike Mason, Ben Stokes (England), Scott Styris, Kane Williamson, Doug Bracewell, Trent Boult, Sara McGlashan, Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr to name a few.

Hawke’s Bay Cricket Camps

Due to numbers in 2021-22, we have made some changes to our Grades & Tournament structure.

  1. Clubs/Associations can only enter 1 team in each Individual Tournament, unless they have 3 or more teams in a grade and if this is the case, then they can enter 2 teams in one tournament and 1 in the other tournament. 
  2. We no longer have an A & B Section for grades, but there is still two Camps/Tournaments for each grade. 
  3. We will split individual Camps/Tournaments into A & B Sections so games are as close as we can get to equal ability.
  4. We have split the Year 9 & 10 Grades.
