The Annual junior cricket festival caters for the U11 and U13 age groups, the tournament has been hosted every year in August for past 20 years, this year will be no different. This tournament was previously also known as the Spur Week and the sponsorship was taken over by the Salt Refiners to be renamed to what we know now as the Salt Refiners Tournament.
U11 Tour to Port Elizabeth 2017
The U11 Namibian team went on tour to Port Elizabeth in December, where they took part in the Cricket South Africa U11 cricket week. For most of the boys, it was their first ever tour, and for some the first time leaving Namibian borders.
They were under the guidance of former National player, Vernon Cloete and it was very exciting for the boys to be going on their first tour for Namibia. In some cases, it was the first time for the boys travelling out of Namibia, and was a life changing occasion.
The team might not have won any matches, but it was certainly a step in the right direction, as the team learnt some valuable lessons, and had the opportunity to see what it’s like to play the top teams.
