HOW TO SUPPORT THE FUTURE OF CRICKET IN WELLINGTON
WHO WE ARE

MAKE A DONATION
The Wellington Cricket Trust was established in 1988 and has since distributed over $800,000 in grants to various organisations in Wellington for facility upgrades, coaching programmes, cricket equipment and tours. These grants have been invested in the Wellington cricket community to help promote participation and cricket and enhance experiences of those involved in the game.
GRANT DISTRIBUTIONS Examples of grant distributions made to our community to date include a contribution to Karori Cricket Club and Victoria University Cricket Club for net upgrades, new junior cricket sets for Taita Cricket Club, support to the Wanderers Cricket Club for secondary school tours and fixtures and the Trust has also proactively supported the New Zealand Cricket Museum exhibition refurbishment along with the many other distributions made to various grant recipients.

OUR NEXT PROJECT
Wellington School of Cricket Talent Centre
Work has now begun on a brand new, state-of-the-art training facility to be located on the lower field of Wellington College, in partnership with the school. Modelled off the recently completed New Zealand Cricket High Performance Centre at Tauranga's Bay Oval, the new training centre will have 20 grass wickets and four artificial wickets housed in a greenhouse with a retractable roof that can be closed to enable training in wet weather. The centre will provide access to grass wickets 12 months of the year, enabling all pathway team and athletes trainings to be conducted on grass, better replicating the conditions that the players perform in. With the 20 grass training wickets at the Talent Centre, alongside the 30 grass training wickets at the Cello Basin Reserve, Cricket Wellington will now be able to provide access to 50 grass training wickets across two central Wellington venues.
