Toronto Police Cricket Club (TPCC)
1. Updated information on your sport, perhaps a history, past accomplishments etc.
The Toronto Police Cricket Club was created in 1992 by uniform and civilian members of the Toronto Police Service. We competed in the Scarborough League until 1997
got our own cricket ground located at Whiteheather Blvd and McNicoll Avenue Scarborough. After we moved into our ground we left the league and began to play various community teams
within Scarborough and the GTA.
In 1998 we began our first international tour to Barbados competing in the Second International Police Cricket Championship. Since then we have travelled to Australia, Sri Lanka, England, South Africa and Pakistan
to name a few places.
Our primary mandate as a Club is to “foster better community relations through the game of cricket.”
We have also hosted the North American Police Cricket Championship for the past twelve years at our ground. Last year we had the pleasure of hosting the North American Police Cricket Championship that included the New York Police Cricket Team, Peel Regional Police Cricket Club, Canadian Police Cricket Team and our newly formed Toronto Police Community Cricket Team. This new team was formed by us to enable players to learn the game of cricket, our senior members that can’t
possibly compete with the younger players. Also included in the team are our members whose skill set are not up to par with the regular team. There is a definite need for this Community team and their mandate is to play various teams within the
greater Toronto area.
2. Upcoming events for 2023
Apart from our weekley games that we play on saturday and sunday and sometimes on friday beginning at the end of April, 2023.
During the season we play our annual Percy Cummins Game, the Camy Lyte trophy match plus we host the annual North American Police Championship and we also travel to
New York City for the return North American Championship match.
In October we will be travelling to St Vincent and the Grenadines for a Police Tournament. This tour is in the planning stages.
Also happening this summer is a lot of work being done at our ground. We have obtained help from our Chief of Police and the Toronto Police Services Board in putting a clubhouse at our ground.
Since we host international tournaments at the ground, it is imperative that the ground reflects the pride we have in our city, our police force and the community. We feel great pride in being given the official flag of the
Toronto Police Service and the city of Toronto which we will proudly display at our ground. It would be wonderful if we could get a flag from the Toronto Police Amateur Athletic Association.

He was fatally shot on September 23, 1981, with his own gun, after he and his partner were disarmed when they answered a routine disturbance call in a west Toronto rooming home.
The high esteem in which Cummins was held by his colleagues was reflected in the Service dedicating its Scarborough cricket ground in his memory in June 1998, the same year the annual cricket fixture was launched.
Cummins is survived by his widow, Eurieta, who attended the game and participated in recognizing the teams, and children Kim and Kevin.
“This one is for you,” Butt told Cummins’s widow after his team clinched victory.
