Banks DIH to provide free Kids Zone at Kares One Guyana T10 Blast
Teams are finalising their preparation for the highly anticipated inaugural Kares One Guyana T10 Tapeball Blast, which is now just days away.
The first ball is expected to be bowled at 09:00h on Saturday, July 29, across five venues in Georgetown, while the semi-finals and the grand final will be played the next day at the Everest Cricket Club.
The organisers are promising high quality and competitive cricket from the 32 teams in the knockout 10 overs per side tournament, while there will be live streaming for the world to see the product.
The grand prize is $1M, while many individual prizes are on offer.
Additionally, spectators can win instant prizes from sponsors by participating in a novelty cricket-related event.
In what has turned out to be the perfect family-oriented event, the organisers have promised to set up a specially designated area, dubbed the Kids Zone.
There the children will enjoy free rides in the child-friendly zone, which will include a bouncy castle.
Additionally, in partnership with sponsor Banks DIH Limited, there will be free ice cream, soda, snacks and water for the young ones.
Co-Director of the tournament, John Ramsingh, said, “Banks DIH have demonstrated their generosity previously, but this is above and beyond. Words are not enough to say thank you. With this excellent idea, parents will have peace of mind with their children in the safe zone while they [parents] either play or watch the action on the field. It is a win for everyone.”
