Zurich Crickets Club is one of the largest junior cricket clubs in Switzerland. Formed in 2004 it now has about 70 junior playing members aged between 7-18, both girls and boys, and an army of mums and dads helping out behind the scenes.
Most teams train on Saturday mornings (outdoors in summer and indoor facility in winter) with competitive games held over the weekend period. The club is affiliated with the Swiss Cricket Association and plays competing teams from across Switzerland.
Games are played under MCC Laws of Cricket, as modified by each Association to suit junior competition (local rules). The local rules relate primarily to batting and bowling limitations or requirements, aimed at ensuring all players have a fair go.

Our Club is run by parents of players, none of whom are paid for the many hours of work they contribute to the Club. Your help as a parent in running our Club is vital. We urge you to participate by volunteering to become a manager, coach, scorer, recorder or umpire,or by assisting our committee in organising events or by facilitating equipment to training and game venues.
The Club's philosophy mirrors that of the MCC guidelines for youth development, namely to provide a well organised competition that enables as many junior members as possible to enjoy the game of cricket, and for them to get the most out of their participation. Differential skills within the same team should not lessen the enjoyment and sense of achievement of player, regardless of standard.

The emphasis is on:

  • Enjoyment
  • Playing in and being an integral part of a team
  • Giving all players a fair go
  • Improving cricket skills
  • Learning the laws of cricket, and how to play within them
  • Learning good sportsmanship and the principle of fair play

 

Whilst we obviously play with the aim of winning, we do not play to win at all costs. We remember that this is Junior Cricket, not the Ashes!
