Team ‘Windmills’ was first formed in 2016 as a merge of two soft ball cricket teams from Mt Eden and Mt Wellington. During the first two years after the merge, the team participated in many tape ball tournaments in Auckland. With time the team developed a more attack-minded batting line-up and a strong bowling performance, allowing them to secure many victories under their belt. Their stroke makers, pacers and beguiling spinners became well known among the Auckland tape-ball community and their defensive approach to batting allowed them to whitewash many matches and made them back to back winners in many Champions Trophy tournaments.
In late 2018 the team decided to move to hard ball cricket and got themselves registered at one of the best, and very helpful, Waitakere Cricket Club, under Men’s One Day Grades – 4B, and ended up ranking at 3rd place. As of December 2019, Team Windmills is ranked top of the table Men’s One Day Grades – 4B. It’s till a beginning, the journey never ends.
