Connecting Clubs x University of Sussex
Connecting Clubs International (CCI) is thrilled to announce the first Sixes Tournament of 2016, taking place at the University of Sussex on Sunday 1st May. With sides made up of Sussex University Cricket Club members, Sussex University Old Boys, and CCI representatives all pitched against each other, it’s set to be a day of rivalries old and new and good-natured competition. With only six on a side and six overs, this short, sharp, and exciting mini-tournament is set to ignite the CCI fundraising this summer.
A number of matches will be taking place throughout the day with a BBQ and refreshments aplenty being served on the sidelines. The midpoint of the day will see players chance their arm at a range hitting competition, which is almost certain to end in embarrassment for some!
All money raised from the day will go towards CCI’s project in Nepal. This cricket development project is widening access to the game through sharing coaching expertise, donating equipment and improving infrastructure. The project is based in the Nepalese city of Biratnagar in the east of country. With a project delivery date of February 2017, the University of Sussex Sixes Tournament will be another crucial step towards providing lasting social change in Nepal.
The University of Sussex is a special place for CCI, with Founder and CEO Angus Berry gracing the Falmer wicket throughout his three years at the university. Regional Officer for Nepal, Avi Shrestha also undertook a Masters Degree at the university.
CCI is delighted that the University of Sussex partnership is proving so productive; to find out more about projects, donating and getting involved then check out the website:
