Tournament history

Lyceum Alpinum, Zuoz

The Zuoz tournament, hosted by the Lyceum Alpinum, has been running annually for over twenty years and essentially involves seven adult teams from across Europe plus the Lyceum Alpinum school team.

Cricket has been played at the Lyceum for over ninety years and the school pitches, at almost 1800m above sea level, are thought to be the highest in Europe. The air is thinner (only 80% of the oxygen compared to sea level) and the UV is intense - so sun cream, hats, sun glasses and a cricket jumper are all a must!
