Hakuba Cricket Club – Cool Runnings

Hakuba in the summer

The 3rd best cricket team in Japan. Mt Fuji in the background.

Congratulations are in order to the Hakuba Cricket Club for their 3rd place in the Japanese National Titles. The group started out last year with a few of the local expats having a bit of a hit on one of the tennis courts in town. This year they established an official club and played each week with a couple of away games against the Sano team on proper pitches and using the 20/20 format. We were invited to the Nationals last weekend after demonstrating that we could play at a high enough level. A shakey start was endured before everyone found their way and a convincing win in the last game under pressure gave us third place. Not bad for a bunch of skiers and snowboarders looking for something to do in the summer here in Hakuba. This taste of success ensures that we will be back there next year to better our ranking. Thanks everyone for a great summer. After this weekend I will be packing the bat away for what is guaranteed to be another massive winter in the Japanese Alps.
