Cricket is more than a sport. It is a set of values: Fairness and Integrity, Excellence, Accountability, Teamwork and Respect for diversity.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, cricket was introduced to Granada when the Granada Cricket Club (GCC) was founded by Andrew Applin and Richard Abbott. Through the great game of cricket, the vision was to create a positive, diverse and inclusive sporting community and arena for self-expression for all people regardless of their background, gender or orientation. Since that time, the GCC has established its home on ‘Las Vegas’ of Granada, converting a rubbish dump into a picturesque sporting field at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. Right from their first game in 2021, the red and blacks have proudly represented those values each time they compete in the Southern Cricket League, in the southeast of Spain.
