Palmerston North Boys’ High School is home to a New Zealand-first Indoor Grass Cricket practice facility.

This facility is located on School grounds, however is owned and managed by Manawatu Cricket Association (MCA).

The NZCT Cricket Centre is the worlds first indoor, natural grass, cricket specific training facility.

The NZCT Cricket Centre is a climate controlled, retractable-roofed facility, that allows cricket players and teams of all ages and abilities the chance to train 12 months a year, no matter the weather.

The NZCT Cricket Centre is a Manawatu Cricket facility, and is available to hire for winter, pre-season, and summer training.

The NZCT Cricket Centre is a fully covered grass practice facility located on the grounds of Palmerston North Boys’ High School. This practice facility is the first of its kind in the world and we feel very fortunate to have it here in the Manawatu.

The centre was brought to life by the leadership of Pods Hood and was 10 years in the planning before finally being erected in 2014. With the centre now fully operational, numerous teams from around the local area, as well as teams from Wellington and the NZ White Ferns, have been using the facility.
