Cricket was established in the Waimate District in 1882 and in 2007 Waimate celebrated 125 years of cricket in the District. Past and present members participated in the Jubilee celebrations which included a get together, formal dinner with Guest Speaker Shayne O’Connor and a Twenty/20 past versus present cricket match. The weather was brilliant and the club started the weekend well by winning all their matches in the local competition.
In the beginning Waimate held its own competition, and this would last until 1971 when due mainly to the decline in the membership of most clubs it was decided at a special meeting to wind up the then Waimate Sub-Association. A new club was formed under the name of Waimate and two teams were entered in the South Canterbury competition. Today 38 years on, Waimate has senior, second grade and fourth grade sides in the men’s competitions as well as a JAB side and a ladies team in the SC competition.
