SFU Cricket Club

SFU Cricket Club is a non-professional team sports interest club under the SFSS. They have four main objectives:

  1. Learning. Cricket isn’t a popular sport in North America, and the club focuses on allowing people to learn more about the game.
  2. Discussion. Cricket enthusiasts come together to discuss teams, players, and matches around the world.
  3. Watching games together. The club has events with livestreaming of cricket games and free food.
  4. Play. Club members come together to play cricket together. They aren’t allowed to support hardcore play, so they play with a soft ball instead of a leather ball.

Essentially, the club is a means for socialization, and they center cricket as an integral part of that.
