The Lord’s Tavener is a UK based youth cricket charity dedicated to giving disadvantaged young people a sporting chance by creating opportunities for young people to play cricket within their local communities.
As part of Cricket Namibia’s development strategy, some of the equipment was donated to Auas and Gammams Primary Schools. The rest of the equipment will be distributed to other regions of the country.
Cricket Namibia has also partnered with Gammams Primary school to develop cricket nets and a cricket field at the school. It is envisaged that this venue should ultimately become the primary venue for Cricket Namibia’s junior cricket development in Khomasdal and Katutura. As such it will be the hotbed for the development of the new generation of cricket players. Cricket Namibia has over the recent past experienced some significant international success. Said Dr Donovan Zealand, CEO of Cricket Namibia, “our junior teams have also performed consistently well over the past few years, whilst we have also made tremendous strides in the development of girls and women’s cricket. Cricket Namibia’s development strategy aims at taking cricket to all corners of the country.”
Added Zealand ,“all our efforts aimed at giving our youth, the leaders of the future, an opportunity to develop into worthy and productive citizens and to inculcate in the youth, all the life values that flow from the great game of cricket.”
