Club cricket comes in a variety of forms: From the show up to drink variety (yes that was us in 1993) to the three practices a week, ruthless selection type.
Our overarching philosophy is neither. We play cricket to have fun... which is somewhere between the two philosophies.
Ultimately we want to get our membership as much cricket as they want. This normally means having a good balance of league games, friendlies, and around one "tour" per month to interesting places to play against good people. For example, the Sarasota tour during MLK weekend in January consists of 2 friendly/competitive fixtures, where everyone who is there has his fair share of cricket against a fantastic bunch at the Sarasota International Cricket Club.
To get to the right number of games, we have a 50-60 game season starting in April and ending in mid to late October. We play on both days, sometimes fielding 4 sides on a weekend! We also have Winter nets organized approximately every other week during the months of January, February and March, for those who want to get their cricket fix during the Winter!
For more information, please contact any of the following people to join / learn more about the club:
In 2013 we will play in the fourteen team Southern Connecticut Cricket League (thirteen 40-over games and a minimum of three Twenty20 games), the six team World Series League, (10 or 11 games), six games at the Philadelphia Cricket Festival, and two other trips to locations like Montreal. The rest are friendlies against other local teams.
