Re: Cricket anyone

I haven't played cricket since school, always enjoyed watching though but the village I used to live in had quite a good team - used to play a charity match vs the cast of Emmerdale Farm every year - so I never risked pulling on the pads so to speak

Would be up for a friendly match though, 3 down, 19 to go...?

Re: Cricket anyone

I would be delighted to have a game.

Now, how do we do this?

I am told there is an active club in Wintertur, but I guess you were thinking of something a little more informal. But, we could organize to go there 'en masse' (ok, a very small mass).

Still, you/we really do need: wicket, stumps, pads/gloves etc., and a hardish ball to make it fun.

Re: Cricket anyone

I'd like to play, but I know I'd be bloody awful without lots of practise.

If there's an opportunity for an very informal knock (or even some indoor cricket) just to see where were at - then I'd probably try to come down.

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

Like Cricket ? Join an existing club in Zurich!

I am wondering if there any cricket buffs in EF.

If there are, you might want to join my Club ( The Sri Lankan Cricket Club who play the Swiss Cricket League ) - we welcome cricketers of any nationality.

There are 15 teams who participate in this Swiss Cricket League organised by the SCA with practices held at the Fronwald ( Bus 62 bis Fronwaldstrasse 115
8046 Zürich ). Map.

If interested, please PM me.

Hi there,

I am a member of SCA and there is a possibility for kids to play cricket as well...

Please contact Patrick on patrick.henderson@swisscricket.ch

He is responsible for youth (includes kids as well) development.

They train ALL the year round. (Yes, all the year round..indoor training in winter)

Hope this help....

Cheers
Ehsaan

Re: Like Cricket ? Join an existing club in Zurich!

I found this link. These guys have only BDM stuff. I dont know how much reliable they are. But if you want other brands, there are tons of online shops from UK?
