DCB calls informal meeting in NRW

Logo-Deutscher-Cricket-BundThis Saturday, October 18, the DCB will be holding a meeting in Cologne to discuss the future direction of cricket in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) and the surrounding regions.

The season has now come to an end and the DCB is very grateful for the hard work from Ligaleiter Syed Haider and DCB’s André Leslie in making sure that this season’s Bundesliga, Regionalliga and DCB-Pokal leagues could take place in some difficult circumstances.

Now we need to make plans to make sure that we can build on this basis and bring NRW cricket back to the position it should be in. Part of the DCB board will be present at the meeting, to take questions and talk through ideas with representatives of the clubs. Weiterlesen

Successful season of youth cricket comes to an end in North Germany

IMG_8012Following a winter season that saw the North German Cricket Association (NDCV) hold indoor tournaments in five age groups, the NDCV held four youth leagues throughout the season as youth cricket took one further step to establishing itself in the region.

Following major financial investment into North German cricket clubs by ICC Europe as part of its “Regional Support” programme, the DCB and NDCV were able to successfully organise leagues that have allowed an estimated 250 children to play competitive cricket on a regular basis. It is hoped that this will lead to more children taking up cricket in the region and will act as a spur to other regions in Germany to develop their own youth cricket structures. Weiterlesen

Youth development in Berlin – DCB, Britannia & Cricket Lingo

Cricket_LingoThis summer has seen incredible development in youth cricket in Berlin with several projects that have seen Berlin youth cricket establish itself, especially in the under 11 age group. On the back of the excellent work that has been done by Martin Haynes and Berlin Cricket Club with schools in the city, the DCB has been supporting Berlin-based Pravin Patel in his quest to bring cricket to as many schools as possible.

Pravin, a member of the Berlin based BSV Britannia club, has been teaching cricket at several schools in the east of the city, combining the sport of cricket with English lessons, a combination that has been attractive to several schools already. Pravin’s idea is called “Cricket Lingo” and has been supported by the DCB in the way of investment in the equipment that is necessary to further this idea. Weiterlesen
