Cricket is a sport which can be played on Koh Chang, especially on the beach. Prefer the low tide to have more space and to not bother other people.
I haven't seen any cricket equipment sold or which can be rented on the island, you will have to bring your own. But there are crickets fans on Koh Chang and even teams which are playing every week on the northwest of the island, in Klong Son.
There is no problem joining the Koh Chang Beach Cricket team when they are playing, they will be happy to have new players.
There is even a competition on the island. Yes, it's an annual cricket tournament that takes place at Shambhala Beach Bar at the Siam Royal View complex in Klong Son.
During the Koh Chang Beach Cricket tournament ten teams from Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket,... and of course, Koh Chang are taking part. There are food and drinks for spectators and players and the tournament provides some entertainment to the island.
