About Tapeball

Tape ball cricket began in Karachi, Pakistan in the 1960s where proper equipment, pitches and grounds are a luxury. Informal cricket games are played widely by children and young adults across the cricket-playing world, especially in South Asia. Local grounds, parks and city streets are common locations to find locals playing the games in afternoons and evenings. The tape ball format provided a solution to a vexing issue for these cricket enthusiasts and one we believe will also work in our increasingly diverse country.

Tapeball is a great way to get back in to the game or for fans of cricket which will hopefully create a “Tapeball” following in Scotland.  There is also a pathway for those who want to progress their skills further.  We are confident this  will raise the profile of the game in Scotland but act as a catalyst to greater levels of participation making it the most diversely played sport in Scotland!
