WBHS Opening Fields For a CSE Cricket Tournament
On Sunday 29 November WBHS opened our Silverhurst Fields to boys from around the Western Cape playing in four teams, with two matches each. This was a glorious opportunity for youngsters to get some game time during the Covid-19 pandemic which has so severely restricted youth sport. Wynberg Cricket enjoys close relationships with both the Jacques Kallis Foundation and the Jonty Rhodes Way, whose association with our 1st XI coach, Ryan Maron, and his Cricket School of Excellence, put the event together.
Ryan commented on the day: “We’re grateful to Wynberg Boys’ High for the use of the fields – the day was designed for pure enjoyment, with no winners except the game of cricket, and making new friendships. While the limited number of teams played under strict Covid-protocols, we’re looking to expand this event format to many more teams once social normality returns. It was great to have Mr de Waal drop by to support – I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying my time at WBHS where the vision, the openness, and the desire to ensure the boys have fun learning to become better cricketers, can only benefit them on their way to adulthood
