Quickhit Tournament to be played in Wellington

Quikhit, a modified version of cricket developed by New Zealand Cricket, provides young girls with the opportunity to play cricket this summer. Two zoned tournaments are being held at Petone Rec Ground on the 6th of November and Ngati Toa Domain on the 12th of November.

While it is similar to indoor cricket, the game has been apapted to increase the girls involvement in the game. Teams consist of 8 players and a soft incrediball is used with lightweight pads and gloves provided. Everyone gets a turn batting, bowling and fielding. Games are considerably shorter than traditional formats. No cricket experience is needed just a positive attitude.

A number of current Blaze and White Ferns players will be at the Quikhit tournaments, including Sophie Devine and Sian Ruck. Local clubs will also attend to provide more information about playing cricket this summer. There will be prizes and giveaways for the girls who take part and give Quikhit a go.

Below are the schools that have been invited and what zone each school falls into. Cricket Wellington is hoping to extend the number of zones next year pending the success of this years event.
