Smash Play youth-rangatahi

Smash Play youth-rangatahi is cricket for secondary school aged players (13 – 18 year olds). It provides options to play as a team, with a couple of friends or simply challenge yourself. Cricket is no longer just 11 vs 11. It’s all about the challenge, self-improvement and having fun with your friends.
