The sound of leather on willow is here to stay at Hobsonville Point. Takapuna District Cricket Club’s (TDCC) initiative to play cricket in the Hobsonville Point area has made progress and promises to make further progress this year.

Several after school Cricket Blitz programmes were held at Hobsonville War Memorial Park to cater for junior age group of cricketers, thanks to the wonderful efforts of Harrison Wills from the Hobsonville Point Primary school (HPPS) and coaching support from TDCC’s Director of Cricket Amita Weerakoon with support from some junior coaches.

During the new school term in 2016, Takapuna DCC are looking at providing these junior coaching programs and Cricket Blitz games for the schools in the Hobsonville area to develop the game further at no cost to schools by TDCC. Any schools interested in using these programs can contact Amita Weerakoon on

The TDCC – HP youth team is looking for more players of 12 – 15 year age group to join this team to play in the 2016 part of the ACA tournament. Any interested players could contact the team managers Sandra and Ian Atkins: The Club is also looking for volunteers and supporters to help grow the Club.
