If you are comfortable with such terms as, silly mid-off, googly, leg before wicket, leg brake and you fancy putting willow to leather, then the place to be at noon this Saturday, January 30th, is the Municipal Sports Centre in Torrevieja, to register your interest in Torrevieja’s Inaugural Cricket Team.
If you just love the game but feel your days of running between the stumps are over then they are also looking out for qualified umpires, scorers as well as coaches. In fact the club would like to invite anyone interested in playing cricket to come along no matter what your background is in cricket, your skill level, nationality, age or even sex, all are invited to participate even if you have never played the game before. The club shall also be looking to develop both junior and female teams within the club in the not so distant future.
The Club has the full backing of Torrevieja’s Town Hall, its own practice ground behind the Sports Centre and is looking to develop a senior squad as quickly as possible to complete with local teams around the region. To register, please bring along your NIE or Passport. Subscription fees can be paid in full or in part on Saturday and are for Junior Players ( aged under 18 years) 20 euros, Senior Players (18 years and over) 35 euros and for non-playing members (all ages) 10 euros.
Everyone that wishes to play can also have a bit of fun on Saturday, as a friendly match shall be played against La Manga CC, so bring along your kit, or comfortable clothes to play in. Everyone is guaranteed a game and this is just for fun to enable everyone to meet with each other.
