I'm interested in trying to play cricket but what if I know nothing about the game?

That's fine. We want you to try it.

"Tape ball cricket is a great entry point," says Haris Saddiqi, one of two local men helping Edina launch the league. He and Masaood Yunis will be helping people learn the game. They both say anyone who has played softball or baseball will quickly pick it up as the skills are transferrable.

Options for you:

  • Form your own team and register. If you do, email Recreational Supervisor Tiffany Bushland and let her know your team is new to cricket. She should be able to arrange a quick lesson, even if it's just before your first game.
  • If you don't have a team but want to play, fill out this Free Agent Form. Teams looking for a player will be notified.
  • If playing in the league seems like a bit much right away, come watch a match or two. We will be promoting the schedules so people can do just that. 
  • Look for an upcoming introductory clinic. We will be holding some to introduce the game, explain how it's played and show you how to bowl (that's what pitching is called in cricket), bat and play.
