Cricket has been played at Castleknock for over 150 years.
There are competitions for U13s, U14s, junior and senior teams. Cricket practices for senior players take place over the last nine weeks of the school year on Thursday afternoons. The College cricket facilities include a permanent artificial crease, a cricket net, one cricket pitch in front of the pavilion and a cricket bowling machine and nets in the sports hall.
Castleknock College maintains some of the long-standing traditions that go with cricket; we wear whites at matches, we provide good teas (all players must bring buns sandwiches or cakes to home matches) and, of course, courtesy, respect for the opposition and for umpires, and good manners are always maintained. The College cricket coach is Mr Brían O’Rourke from Leinster Cricket. Cricket leagues being in April. Training for Cricket during the first two terms leading up to Christmas are on Tuesdays at lunchtime and on Friday Mornings from 7:45am to 8:35am. Teams will be picked based on who attends training sessions and all experience levels are welcome.
