Cricket

Cricket is a field game played between two teams. One team bats first, whilst the other bowls/fields, and once their innings is over, it's the turn of the second team to bat. The aim of the game is to score as many runs (points) as possible when batting, and to get all the opposing players out when bowling. The team with the most runs after each side has played their innings is the winner. Cricket is one of the most beginner-friendly games and incorporates more nationalities than a lot of sports.

History

Cricket was originally one of the first clubs to be established back in the mid-nineteenth century in what was then known as Queen's College, Galway. However, interest in the game declined during the 20th century, which saw a few dormant phases with only some activity in part. The present club was established in 2002 and has rapidly improved in both numbers and activities since. Rumour has it the piece of land just outside the quadrangle was once a cricket pitch.
