Laneway cricket is part of our heritage from Urban Seed and was first played around 2005 in Melbourne’s Baptist Place behind Collins Street Baptist Church. It was a spontaneous response by some young residents in the church building to the question of how to engage with people sleeping rough in their neighbourhood. They soon discovered that many from the homeless community were interested in helping to form a game specifically for ‘them’ and other city users. Thus, a uniquely ‘street’ but safe and inclusive culture was born.

Today our main umpire and host Ray - who for years slept rough himself - is stepping up to co-facilitate the tournament. Join with us as we create space to meet the other, allowing connection to be our cure.

Participation in Laneway Cricket can also be booked as a one-off event for groups up to 24 participants, paired with ‘A Most Liveable City’ walk (adapted to an adult audience).
