On Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th May 2015 the Winterthur Cricket Club will spend a weekend in Lodi, Italy where they will play two cricket matches against our Italian friends Idle Cricket Club at the Radish Cricket Ground (RCG) in Lodi, Italy.
This is an excellent opportunity, especially for those new to the club, to get to know other members of the club besides having some fun on the Cricket field. The is also a social event so also feel free to just come along and enjoy beautiful Lodi, go shopping in nearby Milan, or whatever you fancy doing.
Lodi is easily reachable by car and train. For those taking a car or wanting a lift to Lodi please let me know. Those wanting a Hotel room arranged for the Friday and Saturday also please contact
me and indicate whether you would like to share, or whether your preference is a single room.
In the past, most people have travelled on the Friday afternoon to enjoy an evening in Lodi. One can travel on the Saturday. The return journey will be Sunday after the game, meaning about 5pm. The travel time by car is about 4 hours (Winterthur - Lodi).
