SINGAPORE STARTS THEM YOUNG



Cricket’s a simple game: - see ball, hit ball, catch it, throw it, bowl it – as Singapore Cricket Association demonstrated for a whole new generation at their Discovery Cricket Carnival at the Kallang.

16 teams participated in the carnival in the six-a-side U-12 and U-10 category, Groundsmen, SCA staff and volunteers did a great job in ensuring conditions were fit enough for even this level of cricket after heavy overnight rain. 16 teams took part in the U-10 and U-12 competitions with SCA Panthers winning the youngest boys’ event and SCA Warriors winning the older boys’ event.



“This is just the kind of thing that not only creates excitement for young cricketers, it creates a sense of community for them and their parents and all of the people who do so much in putting on this kind of Carnival,” says ACC Development Officer for Singapore Aminul Islam.

Singapore have also started a 25-over Junior Cricket League for teenagers this year.
