North West Women’s Cricket

North West Women’s Cricket is a collaboration between Burnside West Christchurch University and Merivale Papanui Cricket Clubs, providing women’s cricket playing pathways for ages 10 and up.

Follow NWWC and view all our games on CricHQ.

The pathway for girl’s starts off in both club in Junior Cricket either in a or Friday night program, playing mixed cricket at club or school.  All girls teams from Year 5/6 up will be playing as ‘North West Women’s Cricket’ all the way from CJCA grades to Christchurch Metro Cricket Women’s Cricket grades – so there is no interruption in transition from primary, intermediate school and high school.

Currently the NWWC Convenor is Ross Hastings and this season we are looking forward to having teams in the Premier Women’s Grades, Youth / Div 1, U16, Year 7/8 and Year 5/6 Grades.

Ross Hastings can be contacted via email:

Contact Emma Pearce (Eliza’s Mum) to confirm the orders


  • I didn’t order any clothing – can I still get some? Yes – Please order via Emma – if we don’t have it in stock we can add it to the next bulk order.
  • I thought we had to pay for these. Why are there changes? Because of the lead time to make the customised clothing and ship to NZ (5 weeks) we had to order it before some of our funding was confirmed. We also did not have a sponsor for the Premier Squad that time?
  • I ordered some clothing and now I have changed my mind and don’t want it. We will only invoice for you once you have received the clothing – so give it back if you don’t want it.
  • When do I have to pay for this? We will email an invoice shortly after you receive the clothing, if you need some extra time to play if you can let us know and we can work it out.
  • How do I order the clothing? Email Emma as above or speak to your coach.

Annual Reports

North West Women’s Cricket history

MPCC and BWCUCC have been partners in girls and women’s cricket for over 10 years, mainly due to player numbers which means we often share and exchange players at different skills levels to form Girl’s only sides.

In 2015/16 there was the formation of the North West Zone for Woman’s cricket which is intended to provide a pathway for Youth Woman towards Premiers Woman’s cricket.  As a club we fully support this focus of combining several clubs strengths to form age appropriate and skill levels sides to compete in the Christchurch Metro Competition.

In 2017/18 Season we entered our first combined sides as North West Youth Cricket sides for Youth Girls, however the following season we decided that would include all our junior girls and we would focus on this collaboration specifically for Women’s cricket.

In 2019/20 saw two U19 sides finishing first and second in the competition and approval to play Premier Cricket in 2020/21 season, we also had increase in Junior playing numbers as well as adoption of new logo, branding and clothing.

Please contact the club if you have any specific enquiries with Women’s Cricket.
