We have the usage of a number of grounds around the Howick area. All these grounds are run and maintained by the Manukau City Council. These grounds are generally made available for Club use from the end of October through to end of March each year. Our main ground is Lloyd Elsmore Park with 4 natural turf blocks, 7 Astro turf wickets and 12 midget wickets scattered around the park. Other grounds are Pigeon Mountain (Year 4), Howick Domain and Ti Rakau Park.
In addition to this we are very fortunate to have the use of a number of Schools facilities throughout the Howick and Pakuranga area.
