Cricket Poland - playing and doing our bit to raise the profile of the sport of cricket in Poland

 We are a group of Polish cricket enthusiasts who play cricket close to the Polish / German border in the province of Lubuskie in the far west of Poland. We played our first game of cricket in the winter of 1999 and have met up to play various forms of cricket on a more regular and organised basis since the summer of 2003.

We currently play mostly indoor cricket, which we play in large indoor sports halls, which are designed for and used primarily for basketball in and around the city of Gorzow. We also play a fair bit of outdoor 'single wicket' cricket anywhere and everywhere we can. We actually prefer this form of the game to traditional team cricket, which we don't really have the proper facilities to play!

As well as playing our own cricket we hope in the longer term to develop an interest in cricket among the young of our part of Poland, and currently list among our merry band of cricketers: one 'Level 1' ICC cricket coach, fourteen qualified ICC / ECC 'Introductory' level coaches, and an ICC qualified umpire. All except one of these coaches and umpires was born and bred in Poland! Those of us who are trained up try and promote kwik-cricket to primary schools and youth groups throughout this part of Poland. Our hope is that the youngsters we introduce to the game will go on to play the full version of cricket in later years. This isn't as easy as it may seem given that very few people have any real idea what the sport of cricket is ...

If you are a keen cricketer or have a cricket team which might be interested in coming to Poland to play indoor cricket, with or against our enthusiastic team of Polish cricketers, or help in showing Polish youngsters the game, please get in touch. The nearest airport to us is one hour's drive away in Berlin.

As far as we are aware and since our own amalgamation with Polonia Cricket Club there is only one other reasonably active cricket club in Poland - the largely expat Pakistani/Indian/Sri Lankan Warsaw Cricket Club. But we are currently probably the best, most active, and genuinely Polish cricket team in Poland!
