SFU Cricket Club
SFU Cricket Club is a non-professional team sports interest club under the SFSS. They have four main objectives:
- Learning. Cricket isn’t a popular sport in North America, and the club focuses on allowing people to learn more about the game.
- Discussion. Cricket enthusiasts come together to discuss teams, players, and matches around the world.
- Watching games together. The club has events with livestreaming of cricket games and free food.
- 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.
