The course was part of a project week involving English speaking countries from aroud the world, sandwiched between Australia and India, both countries where cricket has a massive & enthusiastic following.

 

WCC President John Hallam gave the pupils and two teachers (Annina & Silvana) short history lesson about cricket and it's roots. Then Karl Walter & John Hallam practived some basic cricket skills, batting, catching & throwing before playing a match between the two groups (which incidentally finished in a tie).

Despite the session being interrupted by rain, everyone had great fun. At the end of the two hours all enjoyed scones & jam, during which Karl & John were presented with a bottle of wine each for their efforts.
