Women and Girls Teams Information

Takapuna is the ‘Home of Women & Girls Cricket’ in North Harbour with teams in every age grade of the Auckland Cricket Association Women & Girls Grades Competitions. We can cater for Women and Girls across all age grades and abilities, from beginners through to playing for the New Zealand White Ferns.

Takapuna Women & Girls teams regularly feature in end of season finals (winning more often than not) and many individual players succeed to higher playing honours from the coaching we provide.

All playing equipment is provided – helmet, pads, bats, balls, gloves plus wicket-keeping pads and gloves. We also provide each player with a team shirt and cap on loan.
