The Takapuna District Cricket Club’ s  initiative to start up cricket in the Hobsonville Point area during
last summer was a wonderful success thanks to the combine efforts of Hobsonville Point, West
Harbour and Greenhith residents, Hobsonville Land Company and Takapuna DCC. TDCC-HP project
made some excellent progress through the Hobsonville Point Youth team taking part and performing
well in the Auckland Cricket Association competition.TDCC also organised coaching clinics at the
Hobsonville War Memorial park to develop the game through Cricket Blitz and Have a Go Cricket.

The beautiful Hobsonville War Memorial also hosted a limited over cricket game between the TDCC -
Hobsonville Point Youth team against the touring Jan Jac District Cricket team from Melbourne.

TDCC are committed to develop cricket in Hobsonville Point area further during this coming
2016/2017 cricket season with similar programs to last season. Please contact your local
TDCC member Sandra Atkins on atkins@ak.planet.gen.nz or TDCC Director of Cricket Amita
