JvM Cricket Day

On Thursday 18th August coaches & players of Winterthur Cricket Club assisted Cricket Switzerland to instruct 80 employees of the Swiss marketing agency JvM in a four hour cricketing experience at Klopstockwiese in Zurich.

After a fine British lunch experience with the Swiss Pie Company, washed down with Brown Ale, Ginger Beer and Scrumpy, 80 participants from JvM Group were split into six groups, each with an experienced cricket coach and cricket player, to teach & practice some basic cricket skills (catching, throwing & batting) before putting those skills into practice in a six-team Kwik Cricket competition.

Nothing was going to stop the group from playing cricket and having a terrific time, not the precipitous conditions, not even a tree collapsing onto the corner of one field. The participants were enthusiastic throughout the day and soon began to apply strategies & tactics typical to cricket to gain a winning advantage in their respective matches.
Many also displayed good hand-eye-ball coordination, with some great shots and terrific catches.

Osama (Power), Alex, John, Jiten, Tom, Prafull, Chris (Winterthur), Patrick, Nic (Zurich Crickets), Veena (Sapphires) all had an equally good time and were equally drenched by all the rainfall by the end of the day.

They are all to be congratulated in making this happen and, despiute the terrible weather, for carrying out such a marvelous job. They were all instrumental in assisting Cricket Switzerland deliver this event.
