Message: Tournament Coordinator - Christos Yiatses

The main objective of this cricketing initiative was to create a platform to identify and showcase cricket talent within the Northern Suburbs.

The aim to provide cricket playing opportunity throughout a pupils High School years, with the 'Sep vacation' u14/u15 tournament catering for the 1st 2 years and the 'Dec vacation' u19 tournament catering for their final 3 years of High School. Furthermore the natural need and requirement for additional cricket playing opportunity other than the standard school league, however without the financial constraints often associated with tours away from home.

This event is expected to become an annual attraction within the Northern Suburbs sports calendar, growing in statue and magnitude over time. Having being endorsed by the WPCCA and the Durbanville centre for cricket excellence, the expectation is that this inaugural cricket tournament will grow to over 20 participating teams over the next 2 years.

My wish for all you keen cricketers is that your experience here at the Fairmont Pro20 u14/u15 cricket tournament and specifically being hosted by Fairmont High School, will prove to be an enjoyable one, full of fond cricketing memories and greater for the experience of having participated herein. Play the game, learn as you play, forge new friendships, reach for new heights, realize your personal and team goals, but more importantly appreciate the greater experience.
