Parnell Cricket Club has been affiliated since 1883 and over the years has produced many fine players. Since 1996 the Club has been based at the Shore Road Reserve in Remuera and neighbouring Bloodworth Park. Facilities include clubrooms, changing rooms and outdoor nets at Shore Road plus a pavilion and outdoor nets at Bloodworth Park, and the recently completed Terry Jarvis Indoor Training Centre with three indoor nets.
Parnell Cricket Club caters for players of all ages - from 4 1/2 years old to 65 . The Club is divided into two sections - JUNIOR and SENIOR.
The JUNIOR section plays in levels from Grade 1 to Under 18. Each grade relates to a member's School Year as at the start of a season (October) although before School Year 3 players can choose to play up or down a grade if it suits them for social or physical reasons. As players move on to Secondary School they move into the Youth Grades, i.e. Year 9/10 and Under 18. Girls are catered for at all ages and are actively encouraged to participate.
They play in either mixed teams in all Junior Grades or opt to play in a Girls Only team incrediball (soft ball) Under 10 or Under 12. Hardball for girls starts at U12 for the girls wanting an extra challenge.
In the SENIOR section, as well as the Premier teams, there are a number of other 1-day grades and social teams - including PRESIDENTS for our more mature players. There is also a Sunday afternoon T/20 competition which is popular with those players who cannot commit to a full day's play. We have a successful Emerging Hearts Premier Womens Reserve team which will form the nucleus of the Clubs Premier Womens team in years to come.
The Club also run a Last Man Stands Competition on Monday evenings at Bloodworth Park. Please contact the Clun manager for more details.
