April is right around the corner, which means that the cricket season is setting off! Our players are getting super excited and Geneva CC is preparing for a great season ahead.
Here is our busy programme for April:
- 8 and 9 April: the Geneva T20 Cricket Tournament, hosted jointly this year by Geneva CC and Geneva Sri Lanka CC at the Bout-du-Monde. From 12:00 till 18:00 on both days, preceded by a short practice session;
- 16 April: Friendly 40-over match against Zurich Lions, 12:00-18:00, Bout-du-Monde;
- 22 April: First official practice session of the year at the Bout-du-Monde;
- 29 and 30 April: International tour to South of France in Entrecasteaux to play two 35-over matches against Entrecasteaux CC and Monte-Carlo CC.
Furthermore, some of you might be aware of it, but the Geneva Cricket Club has decided to renew some of its practice equipment this season. This includes a Bola bowling machine with a 28-ball automatic feeder, a brand new netting installation system, and new professional nets and poles. The bowling machine is already home and the rest should be set up by the end of April.
Thanks to Geneva Sri Lanka CC for sharing the financial burden with respect to the netting system, in particular its President Sunil Perera. Thanks also to the following people who have given substantial donations to the Club to make this possible:
- Hascal Gollop, President;
- Nayyar Syed, Vice-President;
- Faizan Ul-Haq, Secretary-General;
- Anser Mehmood, Club Manager, Fixture Secretary and Captain;
- Khurram Alvi, Vice-Captain;
- Darius Rao, Secretary-Treasurer;
- Saqib Aurangzeb, Full Member
- Ronak Kamdar, Full Member
Let’s have a blast this season!
