The one day “CRYcket” tournament participated by children under 14 (born on or after 01.01.2000), is a very popular annual family event. The cricket tournament for children will be held at the GC grounds at Fahaheel Sports Club on Friday, 27 March 2014 from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm.
The children are grouped into teams in two age categories and play softball cricket while spectators, parents and well-wishers enjoy a carnival-like atmosphere. 12 teams each are set to participate in the Under-12 and Under-14 divisions initially in four groups in round robin fashion leading to 4 winners who will clash in the semifinals. The 7-over matches will be played simultaneously on two playgrounds.
Apart from the winners' trophies, medals and certificates from CRY-India will be given to each player. Experienced umpires will control the games assisted by official scorers. The teams will play in recognition of the much felt need among less fortunate children in the Indian subcontinent and will carry the message of compassion towards them. They will spread awareness of the work done by CRY, an international organization that believes that every child is entitled to basic rights of survival, protection, development, education and participation.
A colourful souvenir will be released to mark the occasion. Delicious breakfast, lunch and snacks will be available throughout the day, along with bingo, raffle draws and other games for children. “With CRY, Everybody Wins”.
