by | Nov 17, 2006

Cricket SA introduced the game with Bakers Biscuits to give us all girls (and boys)  a sporting chance at enjoying the game of cricket. Proteas superstars Andrew Hall, AB de Villiers, Andre Nel, Loots Bosman and assistant coach Vincent Barnes are billed to make guest appearances at the Bakers Mini Cricket Festival at St Davids tomorrow, gsport has learned on good autority.

“We’re catering for about 1 300 kids tomorrow,” said Niels Momberg, Cricket SA’s Manager for School Cricket. “More boys, but there will be girls involved as well!"

Schools that have registered teams with the Gauteng Cricket Board will converge on St Davids for the 8:30am registration on Saturday morning for the Gauteng Baker’s Mini Cricket festival.

The Bakers Mini Cricket project aims to give all South African children a "sporting chance", by introducing the game of cricket to girls and boys of all races and cultures, and from all walks of life.

Cricket SA introduced the game with Bakers Biscuits to give us all girls (and boys)  a sporting chance at enjoying the game of cricket. To date there are over 5000 schools, and up to 10 000 girls, participating in the programme at any one time, and the stars that field for South Africa are always keen to promote this worthy cause.

“The event is prepared by the Gauteng Cricket Board," added Momberg, "I had a meeting with the organisers this week, and it’s going fantastically well.”
