What is Recreational Cricket Association?
Recreational Cricket Association (RCA) was founded in March 2002 as a member of Japan Cricket Association (JCA), a non-profit organization.
As to take over the work that JCA development department had energetically done since 2000, RCA carries out 5 main activities as follows:

Promoting cultural understandings

RCA provides students from elementary to high school with various “cultural study” programs.

Support in international exchange programs

In order for international exchange programs to be successful, RCA searches with those program members living all over Japan, and engages in various supporting activities.

Participating in recreational events

As a member of National Recreation Association of Japan, RCA receives various kinds of information. Using the information, it will actively participate in events, competitions, seminars, etc. throughout the country.

Authorizing certificates and organizing seminars

With new sports seminars by prefectural divisions of Recreation Associations of Japan at the head, RCA is planning to organize seminars and to set certification systems. Alongside, it will prepare for setting up branch offices.

Selling kits and other products

RCA sells products such as a kit called “Easy Cricket” and Japanese sub-titled video “This is Cricket”, for those who wish to be more familiar with the sport.


As choosing Easy Cricket, different from Hardball Cricket, RCA wishes to introduce the sport especially to the beginners, from children to elderly. Its basic concept is “Cricket to play, to learn and to promote.” We seek for your support.
