Cricket club seeks support

Help is needed by the Okanagan Cricket Club, which represents Penticton and Summerland.

“Our club is at a critical point, we really need a coach and club administrator willing to invest the time into organizing and managing the players,” said Theo Bryant a member of the team. “We are making a call-out to people in the community who have a passion and interest in the sport. Perhaps there are some people out there who have grown up in England, India or South Africa who are looking for a retirement challenge.”

Positions are available as a club administrator, coach, scorer and umpire.

Last year the team played social games against teams from Oliver, Kelowna and Calgary at the cricket ground in Okanagan Falls. Funding for the cricket ground was generously donated by La Frenz Winery and Buccaneer Contracting. Unfortunately, the team was forced to play games not fielding a full team therefore recruits are needed for the 2011 season.

The Club received some good news as they were approved to practice at an unspecified park in Penticton. The practice sessions will commence in April and have an emphasis on the social side of the game. Anyone interested in getting involved can contact by email or phone Theo Bryant on 250-770-0263.
