Gingins Cricket Club are inviting applications from juniors around the country to participate a series of indoor tournaments in November.
Gingins CC hope, and expect, to have 6 teams of 8 participants per tournament.
The objective is to get as many juniors playing cricket as is possible, so if there are individuals that would like to participate but do not have a team, Gingins can assist by forming teams to cater for this.
At the La Chataigneraie campus of the International School of Geneva located at 2, Chemin de la Ferme, 1297 Founex.
|9-10th November||Under 17 Tournament|
|16-17th November||Under 15 Tournament|
|23-24th November||Under 11 & U13 Tournaments|
We have a great group of parents who have committed themselves to be the tournament coordinators:
|Under 17||Rhett Andrews|
|Under 15||Mark Allen, Manish Jain|
|Under 13||Andrew Cleaveley, Andrew martin, Arnold Buchelli|
|Under 11||Mark Steele, Akash Gill|
Gingins have negotiated special rates at the Crowne Plaza 4-star hotel in Geneva, about a 10 minute drive from the school sports halls.
The negotiated rate is only available through Scott Poynton, so please contact Scott so he can coordinate names, numbers, per room etc..
The Crowne Plaza has been a major Gingins sponsor for the past 3 years and, along with INEOS, has agreed to provide additional funds for 2014 to cover the cost of the tournaments.
Their combined sponsorship has enabled Gingins to buy nets, two bowling machines and other equipment. Without the additional sponsorship from both companies, Gingins would struggle financially to host the tournaments, and therefore are REALLY grateful to both the Crowne Plaza and INEOS.
It would be a great gesture on our part to direct our travelling participants to stay there at the Crowne Plaza.
The tournament dinner for each age group will also be hosted by the Crowne Plaza. All teams, players & coaching staff are encouraged to attend the tournament dinner. It is a terrific experience for all and we're asking the Crowne Plaza to put on a nice, reasonably priced meal for all. It should be terrfic fun.
I hope very much that we will see you all at one, if not all of the tournaments and I hope that we can get that full compliment of 6 teams of 8 kids at each event – it would be great!
Best wishes and I hope to see you all in November!
