Gingins Cricket Club

Over the course of the weekend of 26-27 November, Gingins Cricket Club once again hosted its annual U15 indoor tournament at the College Madame De Staël in Carouge (GE). Along with the home team were teams representing Zurich, Basel, La Chat, Cossonayand GRYCC - totalling 55 players.

With a scoring system that encouraged accurate bowling, tight fielding and sharp running between the wickets, the overall standard (as commented by the head of youth development, Cricket Switzerland) was exceptionally high across the 12 matches played.

On Saturday were pool matches with the teams divided into two pools of three teams each determining the seeding for Sunday’s semi-finals and the final. The pool matches were closely contested, and the result could have gone either way.There were also consolation matches, each of which were also keenly competed.

Pos. Team Played Won Lost
1. Cossonay CC 2 2 0
