Cricket Namibia Launches New Schools Tournament

With great excitement and pleasure, Cricket Namibia introduces the annual XCO & APS Junior Cricket tournament.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cricket Namibia is uncertain about the possibility of hosting the Walvis Bay Salt Refiners tournament this year. Although the Salt refiners may not take place this year, it will still be ongoing next year and that the APS & XCO tournament does not replace the Salt Refiners Annual tournament.

The annual XCO & APS JUNIOR CRICKET TOURNAMENT for u/11 and u/13’s will take place from 21 to 25 August 2020 in Windhoek and will be sponsored by XCO Namibia & APS
