Weraroa Cricket Club was established 100 years ago. Today the club has clearly become one of the strongest in the Horowhenua-Kapiti region of New Zealand. We are based in a small town of 20,000 people in Levin, one hour north of Wellington, our capital city. Our home ground and club rooms are based on the Weraroa Cricket Reserve cnr Oxford Street & Mako Mako Road Levin.
Weraroa has three teams playing in individual grades from social to Premier level. And though out the history of the club we have been extremely successful. Our club has been Senior/Lower Grade Champions on many occasions.
Our club is a very young club with players ranging from 13 to 70 years, with our players ranging from social to premier level.
Weraroa Cricket Club may be one of the smaller cricket clubs in New Zealand, but we are a very proud club and always make sure the Weraroa White Heron is flying proud at all times.
We are always looking for new players to be part of our club history, so get involved and get down to the Weraroa Cricket Reserve in Levin Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings for training and we will find you a team at your level.
Levin is a town in the Horowhenua region of New Zealand, based on he North Island of NZ it has the busy State Highway 1 running through the town, and is 90 kilometres north of Wellington City and 50 kilometres south of Palmerston North and two kilometres to the east of Lake Horowhenua.

The strength that our club epitomises. The ability for our club to be self-sufficient and continue to improve upon the traditions and history that we have developed over our many years. The idea that we can continue to compete in any circumstances and that we will never die trying.
We will pour our heart and soul into Weraroa’s success and the thriving nature of the people within the club – from our Junior Cricketers to Senior A, Administration and alike.
The notion that the members of our club are the primary benefactors of our club and for that to occur, we uphold our traditions and ensure a sense of pride and esteem wearing the White Heron and black and white uniform.
We club members will contribute, no matter how big or small, to ensure that our current club members continue to create a legacy that can be developed on in future generations.
Weraroa Club members are responsible for the actions that we exhibit, and these actions need to be in the best interest of our Weraroa family and community whether that be on the field, at training or at the clubrooms.
