Pitched battle waging over Abbotsford’s cricket field

Posted on March 27, 2012


Recreational cricket leagues have fallen victim to Abbotsford’s critical shortage of playing fields, and are now locked out of the only pitch available to them due to residents’ complaints.

Jack Tumber, member of the Fraser Valley Cricket Club, along with members of the Abbotsford Cricket club, were to appear before the council on Monday to ask the city to allow them to resume play at Clearbrook Park.

The cricket pitch at Clearbrook Park has been closed and chain link barriers were erected to prevent play by informal cricket enthusiasts and organized recreational leagues since June 2011.
