The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Waimakariri will be the centre of national attention on
Saturday when Mainpower Oval in Rangiora hosts the Ford men’s one-day cricket
The game will be shown live on Sky Sport and starts at 11am.
Canterbury won the rights to host the tournament decider
last weekend when it beat top qualifier Wellington at Hagley Oval.
The two teams will now meet again after Wellington beat
Central Districts yesterday to secure its place in the final.
The addition of the match has set up one of the biggest
sporting weekends of the year for the District, with the game to be followed on
Sunday by the opening of the Waimakariri Hockey turf, next door to the cricket
ground in Coldstream Road.
A big day of activity is planned for the opening of the $2
million facility, with the fully sized water turf, which has been built to the
latest international standards, having been completed on schedule after work
began last year.
Check out the video of a facility of which the whole
District can be proud:
Opening day activity will begin with junior skills, before a
Rangiora XI takes on a Hinemoa-Kaiapoi XV in a mixed open grade game.
The two clubs will both play their home matches at the
facility, which will also host Canterbury Hockey matches during the winter
The all-weather turf is made of the same state-of-the-art
material as was used for the hockey turf at last year’s Rio Olympics.
Its’ opening starts at 11am and is free for all.
Its addition, alongside the regular use of Mainpower Oval
for representative cricket matches, adds to the growing profile Waimakariri is
gaining hosting Canterbury representative sporting events.
The one-day cricket will be the third match Canterbury has
hosted in Rangiora this summer, with the game being allocated to the home of
Country cricket in the province because Hagley Oval is unavailable due to
preparations for next week’s Black Caps international.
Encouragingly, Canterbury is unbeaten from the previous two
games, having won a thriller against Central Districts, before a more
comfortable success against Auckland,
Both games drew good crowds, although more will be expected
for the final, with a fine day forecast, and national interest in the event.
Canterbury has won the national one day title more than any
other province, but its 13th and most recent success was 11 years
ago, during the summer of 2006.
