A bit about us
East Coast Bays is one of the largest clubs on Auckland’s North Shore, providing cricket for all ages and all levels. Our Junior section has teams from Year 1 through to U13's, our Youth programme covers U15's to U17's and at Senior level we have teams ranging from Premiers through to Saturday and Sunday afternoon T20. In addition we have a Monday evening twilight 8 a side competition, The Bays Big Bash, which is proving extremely popular.Our Premiers are consistent performers, having twice won the Two Day Premiership in addition to the T20 Premiership.
We have a major focus on player development and run Programmes at both Junior and Youth level over the winter. In recent years we have engaged various top player/coaches including Zimbabwean international and former Auckland Aces' coach Paul Strang, Indian international Sriram Sridharan, English County player David Wigley, New Zealand First Class player Neal Parlane and current Auckland Ace, Louis Delport. Our current Club coach is Nick White. Four of our Men's Premier side are contracted ACES players - Louis Delport, Cole Briggs, Ryan Harrison and Cam Fletcher.
We have a strong management structure within the club and our philosophy is to provide a welcoming, inclusive environment for all cricketers at all levels. With a number of talented young cricketers coming through the Youth ranks and several established representative cricketers currently in the Premier squad, the future is extremely positive.
We are unique in that we own our own grounds, at Windsor Park in Mairangi Bay, where we have our superb Number 1 field that has a five grass wicket block along with an added astro pitch. This will give our Prems the opportunity to play T20 and other early season matches at home, provide a home base for our Monday night Twilight competition and also give our Juniors a chance to experience playing on the Number 1. Our Number 1 field also has two large permanent sightscreens which is unique among clubs in Auckland. Our practice facilities include four lane outdoor nets. During the season we also utilise a grass wicket to allow for match day simulation.
Our Clubrooms have a function, food and bar complex and are available for hire for functions such as 21sts, engagements, conferences and many other purposes.
