PEOPLES ROYAL INTERNATIONAL CRICKET CLUB SANYA

The international sports club for the international island of Hainan. 海南国际旅游岛中的国际体育俱乐部

Why was the Club formed, and who formed it? 为什么成立此俱乐部?谁成立的

During the Summer of 2010, a few residents of Sanya decided that the formation of a cricket club would be a good idea.

Sir David Taylor, a New Zealand architect living in Sanya, took the idea and founded the Sanya Cricket Club. Since then, the Club has played regular matches, nearly every month for almost three years.The Sanya Cricket Club was formed to take the idea that sport provides a good work and life balance, promotes social interaction and health. A sports club is a respectable way for people to meet each other. The sport of cricket was chosen because the game is gentle, allowing everyone to play and provides a central social networking hub. It is also a good day for families, wives to meet and children to play. The Sanya Cricket Club is a not-for-profit community-based sports club. The club’s only purpose is to serve community.

在2010年夏天,一些本地居民觉得成立一个板球俱乐部是一个不错的主意。 大卫·泰勒是一位住在三亚的新西兰籍建筑设计师,他把成立三亚板球俱乐部的想法带来并付诸行动。从那时起的两年多时间里,俱乐部几乎每个月都会举行比赛。 三亚板球俱乐部旨在为人们在工作和业余生活间达到一个良好的平衡,促进社会互动和身体健康。体育俱乐部为人们相互认识交流提供了一个平台。 板球运动被青睐是因为这项运动比较温和,任何人都能参与其中,而且它还提供了一个中央社交中心。这同时也是一个很好的家庭日,球员的妻儿也能相互认识玩乐。三亚板球俱乐部是一个非营利的社区体育俱乐部。俱乐部的唯一目的就是服务社区。

What is cricket? 什么是板球运动?

Cricket is a gentle game played with a bat and ball, similar to baseball. Playing the game well requires skill, endurance and tactical play. A player’s physical size and strength is relatively unimportant in cricket. According to the number of fans, cricket is the second most popular sport in the world, after football. The game of cricket originated in England around 1600 and is considered a gentleman’s sport. In China, cricket has been called ‘the noble game’. It is a sport played mostly in commonwealth nations. Like golf, tennis and polo, cricket was a sport played by the wealthier classes, but today is played by everyone.

板球运动是一项温和的运动,用一个球棒和一个类似棒球的小球就能进行。打好板球需要一些技巧,比如耐力和技战术打法。球员的身高体重和力量水平在板球运动中显得相对不重要。根据球迷的数量,板球在世界流行体育项目中处在第二位,仅次于足球。板球运动源于1600年的英国,被认为是一种绅士运动。在中国,板球被 称作“贵族运动”。这项运动更多的在英联邦国家开展进行。像高尔夫、网球和马球一样,板球在以前都是富裕阶层玩的运动,但现在每个人都能参与其中了。
