Manawatū Cricket Association

NZCT Cricket Centre

The NZCT Cricket Centre is the MCA's jewel in the crown. It is a fully covered grass practice facility based down on the grounds of Palmerston North Boys High School. This practice facility is the first of its kind in the world and we feel very fortunate to have it here in the Manawatu.

The centre was brought to life by the leadership of Pods Hood and was 10 years in the planning before finally being erected in 2014. With the centre now fully operational numerous teams from around the local area as well as teams from Wellington, Hawkes Bay, Horowhenua and the NZ White Ferns have been using the facility.

The NZCTCC is the regular training home of the CD Stags and CD Hinds during the pre season camps in September.

Bookings can be made by contacting the MCA 06 354 2498 or emailing [email protected]​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
