VPS Cricket Tournament
VPS Presents Third Annual Cricket Tournament Press Release by Rajiv Ramaratnam The Vrindavana Preservation Society will usher in this summer with its Third Annual Cricket Tournament, the most prestigious Cricket tournament in the New England area. This tournament has roused widespread interest in the New England area and has been covered in several newspapers and online magazines in its previous years. Last year, the highlights of the games were shown on Quincy Access TV. This year’s tournament promises to be bigger and better. All matches will be played at the Joy Hanlon Fields on Mount Street in Quincy. The tournament will be spread across four weekends from June 18th through July 25th. (There will be no matches played on the 4th of July weekend.) Each team must have 11 players. All matches will be limited to 12 overs until the quarterfinals. Each game will be played with a hard tennis ball. We will provide the balls and stumps. Participating Teams must bring their own bats and other equipment. The entry fee is $108 per team. As VPS is a non-profit organization, the entry fee is 100% tax deductible. Interested individuals and teams are encouraged to contact Nikhil Wadwa, Keshav Shukla or Rajiv Ramaratnam either by phone or email at as soon as possible to book your slot as the number of slots for participating teams is limited, and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Their numbers are listed below. We try to keep down the number of teams to focus on the quality of the tournament. Last year, Team UMass Lowell beat Team Baba in the finals to win the coveted championship trophy. Who will it be this time? May the best team win. There may also be women’s and children’s tournaments if there is adequate interest. The venue is a picturesque ground overlooking a pristine beach and makes for an excellent picnic spot. Bring your friends and family to this fun filled event. Last year we had a carnival on the final day of the tournament. We expect to do the same this year.
