What's a Wicket?

Reviving Cricket in the Bight

August 21, 2016, 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Did you know Trinity once had an active cricket team? Members of Cricket Newfoundland and Labrador are in the Bight to teach and demonstrate the sport of cricket. No experience or equipment necessary! All ages welcome.

Demonstration begins at 1 pm immediately following Trinity Bight Canada Day Celebrations.

The event marks the return of cricket to the area after 100 years. Trinity had an active cricket team in the 19th and early 20th century, regularly playing matches against teams from  Bonavista, Catalina, Hearts Content, Harbour Grace and St. John's. The Trinity Museum features a photograph of the 1896 team and old cricket bats, including one used in a match against St. John's in 1910 (which Trinity won).

Cricket is undergoing a revival in Newfoundland and Labrador, following the formation of Cricket Newfoundland and Labrador in 2010. There are over 100 players involved in winter and summer leagues in the St. John's area. The sport is prominently featured in the movie "The Grand Seduction", filmed in the Trinity area, and now on general release.

Location: Sir Richard Whitbourne Park in Trinity.
