It was a great weekend for cricket development.


For the first time they played with dual bowling creases for U11s and U9s, which worked very well.

This was also the first full electronically scored tournament too.


Some great cricket was played over the weekend and best of all the spirit between the players from the various clubs was brilliant!


The final lived up to what has become the norm in recent years with an extremely close final between Basel Dragons Junior CC and Zurich Crickets CC, with Zurich winning with three balls to spare in the last over.


Well done to Zurich Crickets Cricket Club and also the individual prize winners:

  • Spirit of Cricket - Owen (Lux Leos)
  • Fielding (& overall team contribution) - Fynn Bosshard (ZCCC)
  • Bowing - Dev Sharma (Cossonay)
  • Batting - Connor Walden (BDJCC)
