What is Ice Cricket? It’s cricket but not as you know it!
Ice Cricket is played on the frozen lake Harku or even in an old Soviet missile factory depending on the weather. Teams consist of 6 players with rolling substitutes so the normal squad number is normally betwen 6 an 10 and make sure you bring your spikes so you can grip the ice and snow. If you play outside, the wicket is painstakingly carved out of the ice and the boundary marked off as normal to keep the bewildered locals off the outfield. The ball is the same as an indoor cricket ball, a composite plastic red ball which makes it relatively easy to find if it gets hit into a snowdrift on the boundary.
Whether you want to enter one of our brilliant tournaments or you just want a tour with a couple of matches against local teams from Estonia, the choice is yours. One thing is certain, you won’t be disappointed. The ice cricket tours and tournaments organised by Tours4 Sport are supported by the Estonian National Cricket Association which ensures that you play by the official Ice Cricket rules.
Ice Cricket in Tallinn is social cricket at its best, from the warm welcome you get at the airport to the traditional ice bath after your game you’ll have stories to tell in the clubhouse back home for years to come. Estonia is the original and best Ice Cricket destination in the world with the beautiful city of Tallinn playing host to all touring teams.
The best element about Ice Cricket is that all standards arrive in the hope of winning the tournament, with grand plans and strategies, only to be beaten by a team of no-hopers..... and ironically no one seems to care.... because the true winner is the experience, the fun and meeting so many new friends.
