Kilikiti

2022 WGHS Kilikiti

The colourful game of Kilikiti is cricket with a difference .. There is a batting team, a fielding team, and a pitch.  But the big hitting game which originated in Samoa and then spread quickly throughout Polynesia allows you to you get the whole team out in half an hour while clapping and dancing to the rhythm of the captain’s chant. 

Kilikiti is played without padding and in brightly coloured Lava lavas and T- shirts.  The team wields a 3-sided bat, which looks more like a long baseball bat than a cricket one and has up to 20 players on each team. Most players tend to be all-rounders. 

Each year students participate in the College Sports Auckland Secondary Schools Tournament in Term 1 in either the Open or Junior Grade  in A Colourful, Cultural Sporting Extravaganza.  If you would like to join the team, please complete the form found on the registration Tab to the right.
