Women’s domestic competition formally started in the 1935/36 season, with Wellington the inaugural winner.
Canterbury dominated the competition throughout the 1980s and 90s, but in recent seasons, as the One-Day format has become the predominant format played, the trophy has been shared around.
The one-day Hallyburton Johnstone Shield sees the six domestic teams competing against each other in two back-to-back 50-over rounds at each venue as the players all strive for WHITE FERNS selection.
Twenty20 cricket was introduced into the women's domestic programme in 2007/08. Matches in the NZC Women’s Twenty20 Competition normally precede the two back-to-back 50-over matches on the Friday afternoon of each competition weekend, so it starts off the three days with lots of boundaries and big scores!
