CRICKET
Sundays 4 to 6 p.m.

From cricket organizer Hasanka: On Sundays we play an informal game of cricket at the park, on the soccer field. We play with a tennis ball, so no protective equipment is required. If you'd like to join us, just walk up and introduce yourself. This is not a club with membership fees, just a group of amateur cricket enthusiasts. Beginners (and spectators) are welcome. We hope to see you there.

ULTIMATE FRISBEE
Saturdays 10:30-12:30 p.m.

Contact: Matt Price, matt.price@utoronto.ca

Matt can put you in touch with the ultimate frisbee players. He himself cant play right now because he fell off a cliff as high as a four-story building, early in July. He not only survived but after intensive care and some very skilful surgery hes begun to walk again, still using a cane. Seeing him walking in the park is a great thrill for the many people in this neighbourhood who know Matt (but nothing compared to the thrill for his family!). Matt says hes so amazed that hes alive, and his thankfulness is quite contagious.

A note from organizer Hasanka to park staff

Just to let you know that for the first time since we started playing in the park we had enough players today to use the whole of the soccer field. We had 9 players from Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, India and Sri Lanka! We had a fantastic time. It's taken 3 years to get to this point, but it was worth the wait.

Thank you both (Mayssan and Sarah) so much for making it possible." Come out and join Cricket at the park!! Weekly on Sundays.

Wednesdays from 5-10pm the dry rink pad is open for cricket.

Sunday Community Cricket, second year!

Hasanka will continue to host an informal game of cricket from 4-6pm on Sundays near the soccer field in the north east corner of Dufferin Grove.
