ActivePost Have-a-Go Cricket

To get kids active and involved with our summer game, New Zealand Cricket has teamed up with New Zealand Post, through ActivePost, to introduce cricket to over 120,000 youngsters a year. 

The ActivePost National Schools Programme supports cricket participation, coaching and umpiring through clubs, communities and schools.
