Community: Graces Cricket Club

Apparently, Graces Cricket Club is the only gay cricket club in the world! Which is surprising really, because cricket is quite a gay sport. Quite salubrious. One associates cricket with spotless white trousers, and popping succulent strawberries in your mouth to the sound of cork thwacking against willow.
