Description:

Do you want to learn how to play cricket? Alternatively, do you want to learn what the hell cricket is? Adding another option – do you want to hang out with a bunch of VOCers and attempt to play the greatest sport in the world?

I have a plastic cricket set, haven’t played since last summer, and figured that winter time in Canada was the perfect time/place to get a game of cricket going. Possibly with headlamps.

Absolutely no cricket experience or skill is required. I estimate 90% of people who turn up will have never played cricket before and if you are in this boat you are strongly encouraged to come.

Gear needed:

-Something warm (fleece, jacket – lots of standing around in cricket)

-Headlamp (in case it gets dark and we still want to play)

-Food (if you want to eat)

Let’s meet at Kits beach at 6:00pm outside the Boathouse. It gets dark around 6:40pm, so we’ll have enough light for a modest amount of cricket. If everyone brings headlamps we can potentially keep playing. Depending on how good an idea this turns out to be, we might play again next week. Weather dependent, we don’t want to play in the rain.
