King’s College is proud to be hosting the 19th Independent Schools Trans-Tasman Cricket Festival this year. Join us from 19-26 January to see our First XI play against the top teams from Christ’s College (Christchurch), Shore School (Sydney) and Canberra Grammar School (Canberra).

The inaugural Trans-Tasman Cricket Festival was hosted by Christ’s College in 1999. The concept was to have New Zealand and Australian traditional cricketing schools with similar values play a festival of tough and exciting cricket. It was deliberately designed as a ‘Festival’ – no winners are declared from the week’s play.

Headmaster Simon Lamb says he is proud of the strong history of cricket at King's and feels privileged that we are included in this particular Cricket Festival.

"I know our First XI team members are looking forward to the friendly matches with players of the same calibre from the visiting schools."
