Richmond Cricket Club was founded in 1966, when Ivor Dunham was shown a map of Minoru Park. He was told that if Richmond formed a cricket team, he could have use of what is now today’s ground, on the understanding that it would be a team for the City of Richmond and the ground area would be “open space recreation”. Ivor, Martin Gresham, Peter Mason and Terry Howard put together a club which joined the Mainland Cricket League in 1967 and played its first match against Langley on April 29th. The first home game at Minoru was played the following week.
The Club has always been tied to the City and has always been a multicultural club, welcomes new members and encourages juniors.
A second team was formed in 1968 and a third, in 1982. Since then fourth and fifth teams have been added and in 2007, a sixth team was formed, thus making Richmond Cricket Club the largest club on the Lower Mainland, at this time.
The Club has kept to its original agreement with the City of Richmond and over the years has been well supported by the City
