Introduction

Cricket has always been part of Auckland Grammar School. Teams compete in various cups and competitions, including an annual exchange against Christchurch Boys’ High School. Multiple teams are available for students, from the prestigious 1st XI to the entry-level junior teams:

Practice times: 7.15am-8.30am and 3:30pm-5pm. Teams train once or twice a week depending on grade – click here for the Term 1 training timetable.

Uniform requirements: each team member plays in the standard uniform (pictured below). There are two hat options and three jumper/vest options. Note: PE shorts are to be worn for warming up only.

2022 Captain of the 1st XI Cricket team and Deputy Head Prefect Will Jones spoke to President of the Headmaster’s Heritage Committee Vishwas Iyer about the team this season – watch his interview below.

Equipment: School provides training and practice equipment. Boys will be expected to bring their personal playing equipment to training.

Fees: Fees are set in February after the teams are published. They currently range between $300 for the 1st XI and $100 for a morning team.

The Master in Charge of Cricket is Mr O’Neill-Fuller. Students are able to speak to him in the Physics department during the School day or contact him via email.
