High Performance Centre - Lincoln University
New Zealand Cricket's outdoor playing and training facilities at Lincoln University are one of the sport's most obvious examples of the commitment to lift achievement levels and consistency in the game.
The three-ground complex at Lincoln University, including the superb Bert Sutcliffe Oval (venue of the 2000 Women's World Cup and two Under 19 World Cup finals) and the high-quality practice facilities are unequalled in New Zealand.
New Zealand Cricket employs four full-time turf staff who are complemented during the season by additional summer staff including trainee staff from educational institutions from around the country.
Each summer NZC hosts three national tournaments - Women's Under-21, Men's Provincial A, and Men's Under-18, as well as various other fixtures. In addition, many training camps for team squads and specialist groups are held throughout the year, when coaches, players, and support staff are involved in invaluable off-season training, up-skilling and tour preparation.
The facilities also include a six-lane indoor centre that is used for winter trainings and during inclement weather in the summer. The centre can be booked by external groups with our online booking form here.
The Lincoln facilities are the jewel in the crown of New Zealand sporting centres of excellence and guests are most welcome to spend time watching training and matches during the summer.
