Unhappy Social Cricket in Toronto

The Cricket & Curling Club has a new social cricket membership, but it's still pushing $3k a year, and I don't honestly think I can justify that.

Anyone know of any social cricket of any sort, ideally a brits & beer type of thing?

cheers!

I think you're paying for 'club life" aren't you?

Last year we had an informal social cricket club on Jericho Beach. I have a full Kwik Cricket style set, although I use a tape ball unless there are kids that play with us.

For sure, it's one of the more exclusive members clubs in Toronto- full membership is $20k and up.

Even if it was convenient, I don't really want that! Happy to sip my pint of x and complain about the kids these days

You should join us. All Brits except for WAGs. Just have to make sure you have a designated driver, a sippy cup or one of those beer can wraps, oh and the game is tide dependant.

Wow...you can get paid $3K a year to watch cricket. I'd hold out for more. Time is money etc.

Just checked the cab fare on Uber... makes full membership look cheap.

Unless, of course, your beach takes spin?

It depends on conditions, which part of the beach you're on and how many beers you've had.
