Approval has been granted for the construction of a permanent cricket pitch in Revelstoke, B.C.

Members of the Revelstoke Cricket Club have been playing and practising on a field adjacent to the town’s Old School Eatery, but it’s not set up for proper play. Not only is the field improperly maintained, its size is inadequate for regulation play.

A location at Centennial Park has been identified as an ideal site to build a regulation-size cricket facility. It’s estimated the field’s build will cost $10,000. The cricket club has begun a fundraising campaign to raise the money.

The pitch will require the pouring of a concrete pad with an artificial turf mat placed atop.
