Kansai Cricket Association
Cricket is thriving in the Kinki region. There are a number of senior clubs around Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Shiga, and Hyogo. There is also a big university cricket scene with many of the top universities having cricket clubs. Junior participation is also growing through junior clubs and and local events.
Although playing numbers are high, there is a lack of quality playing and training facilities in the region. A “City of Cricket” Agreement was signed with Kaizuka City in 2018, and it is hoped that a playing facility will be developed in the near future.
Kinki hosts a Japan Cup T20 competition. The top-performing players are selected to represent Kinki in the Japan Cup National Finals.
