Profile

History

Formerly known as Seddon Park, having been named for former New Zealand Prime Minister Richard John (King Dick) Seddon, the oval was renamed Trustbank Park following a major renovation and construction of the present pavilion, sponsored by Trustbank Waikato, in 1990. In 1997 a merger between Westpac and Trust Bank meant the renaming of the ground to WestpacTrust Park in line with the new bank's name.

The ground is located close to the centre of Hamilton, New Zealand's fifth largest city 150 kilometres south of Auckland, and is renowned for it's village green-style setting, affording a picnic atmosphere for spectators.

WestpacTrust Park has been the Northern Districts' Cricket Association's main home venue since the Association was formed for the 1956/57 season. It became New Zealand's newest test venue in the 1990/91 season when New Zealand and Sri Lanka played out a drawn match.

First Class use since 1956/57.

Total capacity for cricket matches is about 10,000.
