At the recent Annual General Meeting, the Swiss Federation Of Cricket Umpires & Scorers singled out Geneva Cricket Club to receive the Spirit of Cricket Award 2016 for exemplary behaviour on & off the field last season.
The swissFOCUS Spirit of Cricket Award is an annual award, presented to the club in recognition for consistently demonstrating the best conduct on the field within the spirit of the game in any given calendar year, based upon on and off-field experiences of swissFOCUS officials.
The Geneva Cricket Club would like to express its gratitude to swissFOCUS and Cricket Switzerland for this award. It does not seem much to some, but it actually represents a lot for us. Being the oldest cricket club in Switzerland, we believe firmly in playing the game as the Spirit of Cricket commends. Sportsmanship, tolerance, competitiveness and solidarity are words that we take seriously, both on and off the field. We are thus honoured to receive this wonderful award and we hope to continue setting an example for cricket in Switzerland.
Many thanks to all for your support.
