COMMUNITY EVENTS AT THE CLUB

April 2017
The Club played host to the Kowloon Cantons Community Cricket initiative on Thursday 9th March. A total of 60 children took part across a host of mini cricket matches and braved what were far from ideal conditions. Kowloon Cantons have led the way in terms of taking the game of cricket to the local community leading into this year's DTC T20 Blitz where they are defending champions. Kowloon Cantons squad players and administrators have overseen a community cricket programme which has reached out to over 500 junior cricketers across 15 different schools within Hong Kong. Urvashi Sethisodhi, Deepti Malik have been central to taking the Kowloon Cantons motto of "Cricket, Passion, Faith" out into the local community and offering opportunities to players who have never previously been afforded the chance to play the game or those that have limited experience.
