Re: [Zurich, Winterthur] Cricket anyone

I have played regular cricket in Switzerland since I arrived four years ago, first for a Zurich club and now for Winterthur. Cricket is well organised with league and cup cometitions and clubs in most parts of the country.

There is also a thriving junior set-up with around 300 local and ex-pat children taking part in regular training sessions, matches and international tours.

Clubs are always on the look-out for new players - 99% are ex-pats with the occasional Swiss thrown in. The prospects of a one-off fun game on an established ground are, however, slim. Winterthur plays in Deutweg almost every Sunday while the juniors use the ground on Saturdays.

Switzerland being Switzerland, the ground (being part of a sports complex) has to be pre-booked with the local authorities and is used by other sporting teams as well.

If anyone wants to play on a regular or semi-regular basis then please get in contact with one of Switzerland's 18 clubs http://www.icc-europe.org/SWITZERLAN...IN/clubs.shtml

Groups of people wanting a one-off game could always challenge a club to a match
