SRF "Kulturplatz"

Cricket featured in the episode of Kulturplatz broadcast at 10.25pm on Wednesday 22nd June on the Swiss television channel SRF1.

On Monday 20th June members of the Winterthur Cricket Club and Zurich Sapphires Cricket Club staged a nets session in the presence of the television cameras of Swiss television channel SRF (Schweizer Radio & Fernsehen).


The filming provided a backdrop to the German language programme "Kulturplatz" moderated by Eva Wannenmacher. The main focus was the so-called BREXIT and the UK's referendum on remaining part of the European Union (EU). Members present were asked their opinion on the subject, but also about cricket, providing a stage to show-case Swiss Cricket and cricket in Winterthur.


After training, members were invited by the SRF crew to enjoy a drink & watch the Euro 2016 game England versus Slovakia in the Restaurant Tiefenbrunnen while SRF completed the filming.

Alexander Mackay, President of Cricket Switzerland, thanked the Winterthur Cricket Club & Sapphire Cricket Club for staging a cricket training to support this excellent initiative by Cricket Switzerland's Rajan Thambehalli and SRF for providing us with this opportunity.
