The annual Sporting Chance Street Cricket league got off to a great start last Friday 16th October with the Cape Town weather playing in our favour. The league takes place on the streets of the various communities in and around Cape Town and will involve 12 regions: Khayelitsha, Kwezi, Atlantis, Nyanga, Langa, Gugulethu, Elsies River, Mitchell’s Plain, Manenberg, Ocean View, Masiphumelele and Lwandle.
Each league has 250 participants and coaches and will involve boys and girls under the age of 11. It runs for 7 weeks and encourages kids to get involved in sport as an alternative to getting involved with gangs and drugs which plague many of these communities especially between the dangerous hours of 14h00 till 18h00.
A big thank you must go to our loyal sponsors Disney Enterprises, City of Cape Town, our numerous private donors with media partners Good Hope FM and Super Sport Lets Play also getting involved in the action. The support from the sponsors allows the league to happen each year and for Sporting Chance to employ a league co-ordinator and 20 coaches in each region.
The Street Cricket league regional finals will take place on Friday 20th November in the various regions to find the regional finalist who will join the other regional finalists at the annual Street Cricket final in Langa on Thursday 26th November – the home of Street Cricket.
