WOMEN’S CRICKET IN SWITZERLAND

In 2016, the first ever women’s cricket club was formed in the Swiss German part of Switzerland, the Zurich Sapphires Cricket Club. The Sapphires players have since then represented Switzerland in international tournaments and hope to play more games at the national level. Aside from this wonderful initiative, women cricket landscape in Switzerland remains pretty desolate.

INTRODUCING COCO AND NIRU

Geneva CC deciding to set up a women team is no coincidence. Indeed, the Club thought about setting up a women’s team since last year. But an unexpected occurrence gave us tremendous impetus: two awesome ladies simultaneously approached the club in mid-April: Caroline (alias Coco), who hails from the Netherlands and played for the national team as well as various local clubs, and Niruja (alias Niru), a local student passionate about cricket and with great natural cricketing skills.

This initiative is obviously fully supported by Cricket Switzerland and the Association Genevoise de Cricket
