WOMEN’S CRICKET IN SWITZERLAND
Yes you’ve read it right. The Geneva Cricket Club, oldest cricket club in the country, is recruiting women to establish the first women’s team of la Suisse romande!
In 2016, the first ever women’s cricket club was formed in the Swiss German part of Switzerland, the Zurich Sapphires Cricket Club. The Sapphires players have since then represented Switzerland in international tournaments and hope to play more games at the national level. Aside from this wonderful initiative, women cricket landscape in Switzerland remains pretty desolate.
INTRODUCING COCO AND NIRU
Geneva CC deciding to set up a women team is no coincidence. Indeed, the Club thought about setting up a women’s team since last year. But an unexpected occurrence gave us tremendous impetus: two awesome ladies simultaneously approached the club in mid-April: Caroline (alias Coco), who hails from the Netherlands and played for the national team as well as various local clubs, and Niruja (alias Niru), a local student passionate about cricket and with great natural cricketing skills.
