so….. as per my previous post – Franklin is where the Waikato meets the Auckland region (and vice versa! )
We ARE the link between the regions where some of the many sporting events coming to New Zealand, will be played out and we also have some games here on our patch – such as some of the Junior IRB games (as mentioned previously)
So – NOW is the time to think about the other sporting events that you may be interested in! (and organise that little bit of extra time to make the most of the New Zealand countryside)
With only just a little over 200 days to go until the 2015 ICC cricket begins (Feb 14 to March 29 ), accommodation in the region will be going fast.
The games will be played in both Australia and New Zealand, with 14 teams competing in 49 matches over 44 days. Every team will have the chance to play in both countries, but when the games are in New Zealand, they will be held between Auckland and Hamilton, so what better way to enjoy the top and middle (earth) region than to spend some time in Franklin, investigating our countryside. Take a bit of extra time to enjoy the Auckland city, the Hamilton/Waikato style and the Franklin region which fits between the two!
Not long after the cricket, is the FIFA under 20 World Cup, here in NZ!
Make the most of THIS visit too, as there will be 7 New Zealand venues, 24 teams and 52 matches.
Hamilton holds it’s National Fieldays in June each year, which will coincide with some of the matches, so if you are looking for accommodation, our patch could be the place to be! Franklin is only a short drive from Hamilton and Auckland with our own touch!
Get those diaries out and start your planning NOW! If you have a few extra days to spare, then get to one of our great golf courses and relax and unwind with a round or two at Pukekohe Golf Course, with our very own supa star Kaye Maxwell at Maxwell’s Golf, or any one of our other half-dozen or so courses on the doorstep…..
