The men's National Under-19 Tournament is one of New Zealand's longest standing amateur tournaments and is strongly contested by the Major Associations each season.
The tournament also has the special purpose of identifying and developing those high performing players who will go on to represent New Zealand at the ICC Under-19 World Cup. This ICC event is held every two years, and is the first opportunity for these excelling cricketers to perform on an international stage. The next edition of the tournament will be held in 2018 in New Zealand.
The opportunity for young New Zealand players to play at NZC's High Performance Centre in a very competitive tournament is an important part of their preparation for higher honours.
The 2016/17 men’s National Under 19 Tournament will be held at NZC’s High Performance Centre at Lincoln University from 15 – 23 December 2016. The format of the tournament is a round robin 50 over competition, followed by play-offs and a finals day. At the conclusion of this tournament, the New Zealand Under 18 team will be selected to play in the National Provincial A Tournament, also to be played at Lincoln, in January 2017.
