For the past 8 years the Mount Maunganui Cricket Club have found themselves bouncing around Blake Park without an identity in the form of a cricket pavilion to call home. Through many deliberations, submissions to council and hard planning by club administrators, the club has been given the green light by the Tauranga City Council to build a temporary structure to become the new clubrooms of the Mount Maunganui Cricket Club.  

This is an exciting development for all which will provide the club with a much-needed building located in the heart of Blake Park that will see Junior and Senior members alike being able to have shelter, very basic kitchen facilities and a place to watch the game we all love.  

There is great optimism that this temporary structure will be in place until the Tauranga City Council have finalised their master plan of the redevelopment of Blake Park in the coming months, in which time a more long term plan for a pavilion can be implemented. 

Construction on the pavilion is set to begin before the start of July and will be ready for use by September.  

We have had some very kind sponsors come on board so far which we can't wait to announce in the coming days. We are still looking for any kind of help with the project, so if that sounds like something you can help with, please be in touch.
