WELCOME TO THE ARIZONA CRICKET CLUB'S WEBSITE
The club was created in August 2003 to promote the game of Cricket in Arizona as the way the sport was meant to be played. We are the only team in Arizona who has their own ground and play on natural turf wicket.
We play with the spirit of good sportsmanship, camaraderie, hospitality, and treat all visiting teams like guests in our home. We provide lunch and beverages at all of our home games to help promote our values and love of the game. Our club is designed to give every player an opportunity to play and participate to help the team win. ACC consists of players from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, England and West Indies. We have players who come from as far away as El Paso, Texas and Los Angeles, CA to come play for ACC. We also are one of only two clubs in the Arizona Cricket Association who have our own ground and the only club in Arizona which plays on a turf wicket.
We invite everyone to come and join us for practice and be part of the ACC family. It makes no difference if you are new to the game, you played it in your youth, miss the day with the boys, or you want to get back to playing on a regular basis.
ACC also is a social club with monthly potlucks for all members and their families. This gives an opportunity to meet each others families, and the kids have an opportunity to build relationships as they grow together and hopefully will be future members of the ACC.
Looking forward to you becoming part of Arizona Cricket Club family!
Our core philosophy is quite simple:
Everyone Plays: Our goal is to have every team member have a chance to play league and friendly matches as scheduled and as availability permits.
Balanced Teams: Every game the captains will form a team that is as balanced as possible to ensure ACC has a fighting chance of winning every game.
Good Sportsmanship: We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than win-at-all costs attitude, and the ideals of our club are designed to foster good sportsmanship in every facet of the game.
Have Fun: ACC values and respects time commitments made by every member so the bottom line is to play to win the game, play hard and have fun doing it. We are proud of the successes of the past and look forward to every member helping in the future successes of Arizona Cricket Club.
