Can we count on your support?

Thanks to the generosity of the players, coaches & supporters at the Swiss Junior Cricket Festival and the Zuoz Cricket Festival earlier this year, Cricket Switzerland have raised over CHF1'000 towards the costs of hosting the PCAPH.

Would you or your club be able to help?

Whether it is just to come along as a spectator, lend a hand in organising, or make a donation towards the many expenses facing the organisers and Cricket Switzerland, we would like to hear from you!

We need resources to fund lunches, dinners, transport and day trips and every penny helps!

If you require further information on the PCAPH visit to Switzerland or indeed would like to pledge your support, please contact Ms. Huong Huynh.
