Sports Day in Canada, held this year over the past weekend is a national celebration of sport, from the grassroots to high performance levels in cities and towns all across the country.
Locals were encouraged to put together a team and get out and take advantage of sport in any way they can.
Yorkton got in on it over the weekend with tennis at the LDM courts and a cricket session at the Heritage Heights park on the east end of the City.
On the cricket side of things, it was part of the planning that has organizers hoping to jumpstart the sport, permanently and locally.
"We are in the planning stages of establishing a Yorkton Cricket Association in the city. We play every Saturday (12noon – 2pm) at the Heritage Heights Park," states Faisal Anwar, economic development officer, City of Yorkton.
Cricket enthusiasts gathered together at the park for a good five hours and it's supposedly something that will become a more common sight over the next few weeks.
They had some help with the clinic by members of the SCA, he said.
" The city's Community Development Parks and Recreation Department organized the Family Cricket Clinic on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012. Dan Davies and Kulbir J., representatives of the Saskatchewan Cricket Association, came down to assist the city in conducting the clinic." Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams, both sporting 11 players on a playing field. At the centre is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible; the other team 'bowls' and fields, trying to limit the number of runs scored by the team that is batting.
