(Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th June, 2017)

The 2017 International Cricket Festival will take place in Zuoz on 24th & 25th June.

The Zuoz tournament, hosted by the Lyceum Alpinum, has been running annually for over twenty years and this year will involve six teams from across Europe, including the hosts, the Lyceum Alpinum school team.


This is a friendly event with a festival atmosphere & fair-play is paramount, and although it is expected that everyone takes the tournament seriously, it also expected that everyone competes within the Spirit of Cricket. This tournament is called a “Cricket Festival” for good reason.


It is a red or pink ball tournament and teams are encouraged to wear coloured clothing, but cricket whites/cream are also acceptable.

Umpires will be in black.


Lyceum Alpinum XI (Zuoz 2014)

The hosts, the Lyceum Alpinum school team, are predominantly made up of keen but inexperienced youngsters aged between 13 and 18. As most of the students originate from Switzerland, Germany, Italy and eastern European countries, very few (if any) have prior cricketing experience. A school team player will on average have been playing cricket for roughly two years.

There are teams from elsewhere in Switzerland and from across Europe, such as Italy & Germany, and in the past further afield from the UAE and India, giving the event a truly international look & feel.

The following teams will participate in the 2017 International Cricket Festival in Zuoz:


  Club name Kit colour Country
 1. Lyceum Alpinum (hosts)                            White Switzerland         
 2. Winterthur Cricket Club Red Switzerland
 3. Geneva XI Stars Cricket Club Red/Green Switzerland
 4. Milan Cricket Club White Italy
 5. IIT Delhi Alumni - Cricketing Nomads White India
 6. Zurich Nomads Cricket Club Yellow/Blue Switzerland

About cricket at the Lyceum Alpinum

Lyceum Alpinum

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!
