Li Huahui (Ravi), general manager of the Hong Kong Cricket Association, pointed out that there are currently about 3,000 registered players in Hong Kong. There are more than 100 adult teams and about 110 youth teams. The 120 teams in primary and secondary schools are not counted; and the regular cricket ground There are only about 5 places, and some of them are located in private clubs. Therefore, each court is often full during the season.


Cricket originated in the United Kingdom and has been introduced to Hong Kong for more than 150 years. Among them, it is more popular among ethnic minorities.

Although this sport is not exclusive to a certain ethnic group, if more venues are provided in places where ethnic minorities live, it will undoubtedly benefit their development.

Among the 18 district board districts, ethnic minorities living in Yau Tsim Mong District accounted for the largest proportion of all ethnic minorities in Hong Kong, at about 9.1%.

But Yau Tsim Mong District Councillor, Ho Fu-wing, pointed out that for many years, there has not been any venue that allows the public to play cricket. Private club venues cannot be accessed by ordinary people. "The minority population in the district is not zero. Why are they allowed to play cricket in the area? But it's zero?"

This year, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department finally approved the use of the football field in the George V Memorial Park in Kowloon as a venue for simple cricket activities. However, it depends on the situation to decide whether to extend the arrangement. He Fu-wing believes that ethnic minorities have to face many problems in Hong Kong. Cricket grounds and more promotion of cricket are definitely beneficial. "For solving social problems, starting with sports is an opportunity."
