General

The Club's Premier and Premier Reserve teams compete in Auckland Cricket's one and two day competitions that commence in early October and go through to the end of March. The players from these teams are the club's elite and many of them progress to higher honours, representing Auckland, Auckland Aces and New Zealand.

The Thirds are a serious and competitive grade, playing one and two day matches as well. Many of the players in this grade progress to the higher grades as their standard improves or as required to cover for absent players.
