Love cricket, but can’t fit it in your weekends after family and fishing commitments? Well here’s your chance to bring the old willow out and smash a few over the boundary before dark.

Ellerslie Cricket runs an 8-a-side twilight cricket competition at Michaels Ave Reserve on a weekday evening. Two competitions, pre-Xmas and New Year.

Each team will play one game a week starting at 6pm which will last approximately an hour.

Enter a business team or grab a few mates and join the action!


Times to be confirmed, but each twilight competition will run for about 5 weeks. Our next comp is expected to be in early 2021 – details to follow. Please contact our club manager to register your interest.

Each game will last approximately an hour and after which the club bar is opened and a few sizzlers thrown on the BBQ.
