We play cricket (with hard tennis balls) every weekend in Zurich, interested?

We are a small bunch of people (both students & employed) who play cricket with hard-tennis balls almost every Saturday and/or Sunday in Zurich near the Hardhof tram stop.

In case you wish to join for some casual cricket with hard-tennis ball, PM me.

As a matter of interest, why don't you play with a cricket ball?

And for that matter, what exactly is a hard-tennis ball when its at home?

Because it's deadly, expensive, and would scuff up to be useless soon enough!

The hard tennis ball might be a tennis ball wrapped in duct tape or a specially made one. You can play it on concrete and without pads, helmet etc.

I'd have been interested if I'd seen this thread in time!

Hard-tennis balls, also known as "heavy cosco" (at least in India), are tennis like balls that are much more heavier. it is a closer experience to playing with an usual cricket ball but does not require the entire safety kit & a proper cricket pitch as such.

@beardsy We play almost every weekend. PM me if you would like to join the next time

Not only red, you can get pink, yellow and green balls as well.
