To enter a team contact Laurence Pariaug by 31st March 2017 stating the following information:

  • club name
  • age group
  • number of players
  • players that could be combined with other teams or form a Wanderer team
  • coach name/email/phone

Format

Boys & girls at all age groups competing at the Junior Cricket Festival in Zuoz, Switzerland

Overall, the objective remains to maximise the quality and sharing the participation in cricket.

 

The precise format and rules will reflect the number of entries received, and will be shared with the match schedule at the end of April.
Although taking advantage of the long bank-holiday weekend and staging a 3-day tournament there is a limit as to the number of teams that can be accommodated in each age group.

The plan is to run a very tight schedule to maximise the length of three matches simultaneously on three cricket ovals, making it more challenging for the players and give them more opportunity to play.
Players will be restricted to play in one team only and overage players are discouraged & subject to certain restrictions however entries for combined teams are welcomed.
Caterers will provide lunches on each day of the tournament & lunch vouchers will be provided to team members (players, coaches), but not for spectators. Accommodation is the responsibility of the teams attending.


Teams wishing to attend a tournament/club dinner at the school on Saturday evening should contact Paul Miles.
