Enmore Fun Day on Sunday
As part of its fundraising efforts, the Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) will on Sunday stage its second annual family fun day, bar-b-que and softball cricket competition for both male and female teams. The action will get under way at 09:00h at the Enmore Cricket Club ground, East Coast Demerara.
Four male teams - Floodlights XI, Parika Defenders, Mike’s Wellman and host club Enmore - will vie for supremacy in the 10/10 softball competition, while on the distaff side, Trophy Stall Angels, Mike’s Wellwoman, 4R Lioness and Lady Jags will do battle.
According to the organisers, admission to the venue is free and bar-b-que will be served from noon to 17:00h.
Apart from the on-field action, there will be several activities beyond the boundary, including novelty events, trampoline, face painting, raffle, children games, music and food and beverage bars. The organisers have also instituted a no-entry policy to cool down carts, coolers and gambling boards.
At last year’s event, Success/Mahaica Invaders and Mike’s Wellwoman emerged as champions of the male and female categories respectively.
Watched by a crowd of about 1,500, Success/Mahaica Invaders, a team featuring players from the two villages, whipped Parika Defenders by 10 wickets in the Men’s 15-over final, while Mike’s Wellwoman had to work hard for their three-wicket win over Trophy Stall Angels in the female 10-over final.
As was done in 2013, proceeds from the event will go towards cricket development at the ECCCC.
