The Honolulu Cricket Club was established in 1893 though cricket had been played on the island many years prior to that. Interest in cricket declined in the period around the two world wars but emerged again when the club found a permanent home at Kapiolani Park in the 1960s. The members enjoy playing social cricket, often playing matches against themselves. They also host teams from other countries as well as tour to other countries.
We thank the Honolulu Cricket Club for hosting our carnival and ensuring that all ran smoothly especially when fixtures had to be changed due to the weather. At our team dinner a raffle was held to raise funds towards the purchase of a ride on mower for the club to provide a better playing surface for cricket. The club also has plans to obtain a portable pitch so that two games can be played at the same time. This would help them grow the club especially if youth teams and even a ladies' team could be established. It will be interesting to see what evolves over the years.
