Beautiful yet untypically overcast weather at Tanjong Beach Club on Sentosa was perfect for the annual Misfits Beach Cricket Day. Every year teams come together to do battle on the sand, and this time saw 16 teams of seven – including ANZA Cricket –  taking part. ANZA’s two entrants, Budgie Smugglers and Piha Bro’s, comprised Aussies and Kiwis and both were on top form returning with pieces of silver. While the sand and the sea didn’t replicate a true green outfield, the Budgie Smugglers made it to the Gold cup and the Piha Bro’s won the Silver cup.

Passion for cricket

Dad bods and dubious fashion were out in full force, and neither team was shy about getting in the sea. It was a great occasion to meet old friends who have a common passion for cricket. 

The day was well captained by Patrick Winters and Guy Hudson, and a big thank you goes to all the players who took part and make ANZA Cricket the brilliant club it is today. 

SCC Youth Development

As yet, ANZA doesn’t run a junior team, but Singapore Cricket Club offers a youth development programme for kids aged 5 -10. With a variety of sessions running weekends and mid-week, the Cubs Cricket environment is “all about fun and enjoyment through our brilliant game.” To find out more contact David Bennett at
