Cricket Lingo has teamed up with Britannia Cricket Club in Berlin to offer free coaching every Tuesday from 7pm to 9.30pm @Katharina-Heinroth-Grundschule, Münstersche Straße 16, D-10709 Berlin .
This is a exciting time in the development of womens cricket in Germany and what makes it even more special is that we have 3 very exciting players.
First session went like a treat and we are learned so much. A special thanks goes to Janpreet, Rohit and Kumar from Britannia, they were awesome!
Next steps is to recruit more players for the womens cup in North Germany in March. We strogly believe we can represent Berlin in the competition.
Our sessions are for anyone who wants to have a great time and meet new people. I think we have a great base and we are now ready to move slowly and steadily.
Cricket lingo is developing and learning… onwards we go 🙂
Cricket Lingo was founded in March 2013 and is currently in 3 schools doing what it does best, which is to promote team work, respect, communication and the most important value which is to have fun. With Cricket Lingo you get to learn Cricket and its sportsmanship values and at the same time learning English.
Cricket Lingo started when I was invited to go and see a school with a friend who wanted to send her child there and she asked me to come along. I thought to myself why not as I was always intrigued by how the school system in Germany worked and I wanted to see the school environment.
After having a tour of the school, I was invited by the headmistress to have chat with her. Thats when she started asking me questions about myself and what I was doing in Berlin. I told her of my past experiences and that I was looking for a new challenge as till then in Berlin I had experienced a few turbulent years and a failure in my start up which was selling smoothes and milk shakes. As the meeting was coming to an end the head mistress turned to me and asked what could I do for the children, I replied ‘I can speak English and play cricket’, to which she replied, ‘great when can you start’. I was delighted and I asked her why? she said ‘your enthusiasm and passion for the school made a impression on me.
Thats when cricket lingo started………….
