About Richmond Cricket Club

Richmond Cricket Club was founded in 1966, when Ivor Dunham was shown a map of Minoru Park. He was told that the City of Richmond would provide this space for their use, in order to bring cricket to the city.  Ivor, Martin Gresham, Peter Mason and Terry Howard put together a club which joined the Mainland Cricket League in 1967 and played its first match against Langley on April 29th.  The first home game at Minoru was played the following week.

This multicultural club has always had an exceptional relationship with the City and the surrounding community, including other sports played at Minoru Park.  The Club welcomes new members at any time and encourages and supports junior cricketers.

A second team was formed in 1968 and a third in 1982. Since then a fourth teams has also been added.

The Club is grateful to the City of Richmond for the support and maintenance of the cricket grounds, known to be one of the best grounds in the Lower Mainland.
