Organisers forced to reschedule Speaker’s International Softball Cup
Organisers of the inaugural Speaker’s International Softball Cup have been forced to reschedule the tournament, which was initially slated to be contested this Easter weekend (April 3-5).
Part of the reason for the rescheduling is the ongoing rehabilitation works at the main venue, the Everest Cricket Club, on Camp Road.
The new dates have not been fixed, but the organisers promised to make that disclosure soonest to the public.
Speaker of the National Assembly, Manzoor Nadir, has pledged the continued support of the Speaker’s Cup for at least the next four years. At the launch it was disclosed that 16 teams will compete in two categories.
The initial thought behind the tournament was to use it as a platform to edify the public about the three arms of the state: Legislative, Judiciary and Executive.
Of the 16 teams, six are from overseas, who will play in the Over-45 and Over-50 categories.
The sponsors include: MMD Hollow Blocks and Pavers, Trophy Stall, V-Net Communications, New Doctors Clinic, Beacon Café, Coss Cutters, General Marines, ACS Mining and Raj Ace Auto, Movements Family, Imtiaz Sadik, M.S Imports, JSB Bumpers, Clermont Cricket Team of the United States of America, Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club, Two Brothers Gas Station, Right Aid Pharmaceutical, Guybiz Establishment, Rohan Auto, Windjammer International Cuisine and Comfort Inn, Power Producers and Distributors Ltd, Colin Tablot, Contracting Services and New Dimension Services.
