The Scarborough Hospital Foundation is hosting the Scarborough World Cup of Cricket (SWCC), June 20-22, in support of The Scarborough Hospital’s (TSH) Cancer Care program.
New to this year’s tournament is a collaborative partnership with Special Olympics Ontario. The goal for this collaboration is to present opportunities to physically and mentally challenged children to develop their physical fitness, courage and skills, and friendship with their families, friends and community.
The SWCC is a 10-team, round-robin tournament with 10 overs per match. There will be an opening ceremony on the Friday evening to kick off the tournament. Qualifying games are on the Saturday with the top four teams going on to battle it out in two playoff games and a final championship game on the Sunday. Each team consists of 15 players. The top three teams will receive gold, silver and bronze accordingly.
The three-day event will also include cricket clinics where interested participants will learn how to play the game. There will also be a family barbecue, an international food fair and a Teddy Bear clinic, where children can bring their favourite friend to receive a “check up” from local physicians and nurses.
