David Barmes Memorial Trophy

No match in 2020

Zurich Nomads Cricket Club

Despite various attempts at rescheduling this fixture, the official season opener, the David Barmes Memorial Trophy, will now not be rescheduled and has been cancelled.


Traditionally the first game of the Swiss domestic season and in memory of the late Dr. David Barmes, the league champions have the honour of taking on a Swiss Representative XI that consists of representatives of clubs from all over Switzerland.


This year's game, postponed due to the corona virus restrictions, was rescheduled to be hosted by the 2019 Champions, Zurich Nomads CC, on Sunday 13th September.


However, fixture congestion created by a bout of bad weather during the knockout stages of both the CSPL and Pickwick Twenty20 competitions, has made this impossible.

Dr. David Barmes

The late Dr. David Barmes of Geneva C.C. was the first President of the National Association and in honour of his memory Cricket Switzerland has continued a tradition that the winners of the league championship play a 40 over cricket match against the Swiss national team, marking the beginning of the season and for the prestige of winning the David Barmes Memorial Trophy.
