A HISTORY of Success
On the 25 November 2017, a significant highlight in the history of the Otumoetai Cadets Cricket Club came to pass, when they held a celebratory dinner as part of the clubs 40th Anniversary celebrations.
The cricket club originated from Otumoetai Cadets Rugby Club, with a rugby jersey of the time on the wall at Cadets headquarters at the Tauranga Domain, recognizing the link between the two clubs.
Otumoetai Cadets was formed in 1978 with the Tauranga Domain becoming home base. While success was moderate in the early years, the clubs first Williams Cup in the 1994/95 season started a significant winning streak.
