Young cricketers from the respective schools played against one another, where after the winners were invited to take part in the FNB Kwata Fun day.
At the event, the Cricket Namibia Development Officer for the Erongo region Justus Hangula emphasized the importance of the event, saying that it is vital to give children the chance to have fun and make friends, while promoting cricket as a sport. He said it was encouraging to note that, “the development of cricket is increasing with more players choosing cricket as a sport over other sport codes”.
