Geneva CC participated for the very first time in the Zuoz International Cricket Festival. The Zuoz festival is played in a beautiful Swiss Alps setting close to St Moritz at an altitude of 1670 meters. Teams from Switzerland, Italy and Germany took part, and even the legendary Marylebone Cricket Club, which won the tournament to no surprise.
Despite winning two games out of three (including a victory against the defending champions), Geneva CC did not qualify for the final stage because of a net run rate lower than its tied competitors from Zurich Nomads and Milan. All in all a great experience for our players for enjoyed the trip and the whole atmosphere of the tournament.
