Cricket club makes appeal to city for dedicated field in Salmon Arm, B.C.

Club offers to cover cost of cement pitch

April 10, 2023  By Turf & Rec

Salmon Arm, B.C.’s growing cricket club is looking for a field to call its own.

The Salmon Arm Cricket Club, which has about 25 members, has been playing games of late at a local elementary school field, but is seeking a dedicated field of its own. The club has made a request for a field to city council, stating it wishes a proper facility to train interested players and promote the game.

The club said it would raise about $10,000 it estimates would cover the cost of a pitch but hoped the city would approve a site and give permission to prepare the pitch and ground.

The cement pitch would be flush with the ground and covered with green matting about two centimetres thick. This would allow such a field to serve other uses including soccer and rugby.


Council members have expressed an interest in pursuing the club’s request.
