Following a break in organising softball cricket in Georgetown due to the playing of several tournaments, including the Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association’s Guyana Softball Cup 4, the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Inc. (GSCL Inc.), is back at it again.

The GSCL Inc. Organising Committee, led by the hard working Samuel Kingston, has organised a President’s Cup T20 competition using the ‘big ball’, with the aim of keeping softball teams affiliated to the League, active year round.

The upcoming GSCL Inc. President’s Cup will be facilitating the first six teams to register in the Open and Over-45 categories, with the entrance fee set at $60,000 per team in each category and the winning prizes being $300,000 for first place and $100,000 for second in both categories, along with trophies.

Closing date for the payment of the entrance fee is Thursday and the playing dates for the tournament are December 6 and 13 for preliminary round matches, while the finals for both categories will be held on December 14 at Lance Gibbs Street based Demerara Cricket Club (DCC), with the Open finals being held under lights.

Grounds identified to be used for this competition so far are GNIC, DCC, and Everest Cricket Club and apart from the team accolades, the Man-of-the-Match in the two finals will also receive trophies, while interested teams are asked to contact Kingston on 614-9536.
