The Women's One-Day Competition is the premier domestic women's one-day cricket competition in New Zealand. The competition was first competed for as the State Insurance Cup, from 1998–99, replacing the national tournament (Hallyburton Johnstone Shield). A Twenty20 competition was added in 2007-08. It is contested in a round-robin format, in which each of the six teams plays each other - once at Twenty20, then twice in one-day matches. Each team hosts two others, and one round is held at Lincoln immediately after Christmas each year, with all teams playing one day on each of the three grounds at the venue. The two teams that finish at the top of the respective tables then compete in a final to determine the champions at each format.
The five teams which competed in the inaugural season of the State Insurance Cup; Auckland Hearts, Canterbury Magicians, Central Districts Hinds, Otago Sparks and the Wellington Blaze were joined in the following 1999–2000 season by a sixth team; Northern Districts Spirit.
The inaugural State Insurance Cup was won by Canterbury, beating Auckland by 167 runs. The same two sides contested the next four finals, with Auckland winning on each occasion. The only shared title was in 2003–04, when rain prevented any play on either the original or reserve day, resulting in Canterbury and Wellington being declared joint winners. Rain also prevented play in the one-day final in 2009–10, but Central Districts were declared the competition winners as they had topped the points table in the round-robin.
Canterbury Magicians have been the dominant team winning nine One-day competitions out of 19 and the Twenty20 competition four times out of 10 as of 2017[update]; historically they have runs of 9 and 11 consecutive titles through the 80s and 90s.
