Pitch up in the park
Dubai’s parks are great for a game of cricket, and with a large community of players, you won’t be short of teammates. Safa Park has plenty of open space, while the small geens in Bur Dubai near the Creek (opposite the British Embassy) and near Deira Clock Tower are popular spots to play.
