The new season is nearly upon us and 2016 looks like being an exciting year for cricket in Cyprus with the new ground at Tochni and women's cricket going from strength to strength. coaching for women and youths starts on March 12; there's more details and application forms on the women's and youth's pages.
Cyprus Cricket Association (CCA) is delighted to announce the signing of long term lease agreement with the Church of Saint Constantine and Helen (Αγίων Κωνσταντίνου και Ελένης) for cricket
facility development at Tochni, Cyprus.
Cyprus Cricket believes that it is an ideal arrangement to further establish the game on the island and the facility can be used as national training base and also to play games on regular basis.
CCA is confident that by investing in this facility it will retain and attract new participants and it is important that the facility is available to schools. Having the facility accessible to the youth will be key to sustaining participation in grass roots cricket over the coming years.
To date CCA was over-reliant on Defense Infrastructure Organization (DIO) land. However, this deal can change that and will also re-affirm CCA’s commitment about developing the game in the Republic of Cyprus.
The work is expected to start on the playing area in December 2015 for the facility to be utilized for domestic league games at the start of 2016 season.
Any support in funding the development of facility will be highly appreciated by CCA.
This is also an exciting opportunity for any business to promote their product(s) with Cyprus Cricket Association. CCA would welcome the opportunity to discuss with potential sponsors the provision of various means to establish a relationship that is mutually beneficial to both parties.
