The Sarasota International Cricket Club at Lakewood Ranch

As exemplary a place to play as Lakewood Ranch is to live, the Sarasota International Cricket Club's laser-leveled field is everything a batter worth his wickets could hope for: International Cricket Council (ICC) approved Nott's sport artificial turf with match and practice wickets from the UK and a Clubhouse where bowlers and batsmen can enjoy tea and sandwiches between battings.

Founded more than 25 years ago, the Sarasota International Cricket Club's permanent facility at Lakewood Ranch is truly worthy of the world-class competition you'll find there.
