We enjoyed watching the White Ferns play Pakistan earlier this year. Its great to be close to the action - but be prepared to take some form of sun shade with you. As this is a fairly new ground, the trees have not matured yet.

I have been to several school sports events here. The facilities are excellent with plenty of parking. I'm looking forward to seeing some provincial cricket as it is a warm and sunny location.

This is a great venue for watching cricket. It's small and informal. It has been updated and facilities extended since we were there a couple of years ago.

I just love Saxtons cricket ground. It reminds me of the Basin Reserve in Wellington with the white picket fence around it. The view from any angle is always good, and you seem so close to the players from wherever you sit. Well done Saxtons...More
