Cricket

Cricket is played in Terms One and Four. The College usually fields up to ten boys’ teams and one girls team in ASSCA competitions with the boys’ teams playing on Saturdays and the girls mid-week.

King's College boasts some of the best pitches in the country on the oak shaded ovals.  The First XI has a long tradition of success at both Regional and National level, winning the National Secondary Schools title, The Gillette Cup in 1999, 2004, 2006 and back to back in 2010 and 2011.

A recent addition to the College cricket facilities has been the completion of a three lane indoor cricket centre for batting and bowling in wet conditions or for pre-season winter training.  The College has also invested in two new turf wickets making it one of the only schools in Auckland to have four separate grass wickets.

In recent years King's College Old Collegians Tim Southee, James and Hamish Marshall and Rob Nicol have represented New Zealand in the Black Caps National team.

The college is fortunate to employ the services of former NZ Test Cricketer Dipak Patel as the Head Coach of the 1st XI team.
