Scarborough, Toronto: Last year’s inaugural Scarborough World Cup of Cricket tournament was such a success, that it’s returning again this weekend with a fundraising goal of $75,000.
Organized by The Scarborough Hospital Foundation, this family-friendly event includes a 10-team round-robin tournament on Saturday and Sunday, with 10 overs per match. The top three teams will receive gold, silver and bronze accordingly.
The three-day event will also include cricket clinics to show interested participants how to play the game. There will also be a family barbecue, an international food fair and a Teddy Bear clinic, where children can bring their favourite friend to receive a “check up” from local physicians and nurses.
New to this year’s tournament is our collaborative partnership with Special Olympics Ontario. The goal for this collaboration is to inspire physically and mentally challenged children to achieve their athletic dreams by developing their physical fitness, courage, and relationships with their families, friends and community.
