The Valencia Smash! this Thursday 19 October 2017

The time has arrived, Valencia will play host to its first ever cricket tournament, the Valencia Smash! T20 from Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 October 2017.

Just under a year in the making, Valencia Sports Tours and Levante CC have come together to host what we hope will become an annual event on the cricket calendar. Four teams from the UK, Cowley Drifters, Herts Vets, West Hagley and Freshfields, along with their local hosts, with play 11 matches over four days, including two matches under lights.

Supported by Cricket EspaƱa, this end of the season tournament has been created for several reasons. The first, a great way to finish the season, plenty of great cricket ahead with equal amounts of social interaction guaranteed. The second is to continue the development of Levante CC as an ever growing club, one that is improving on both a cricketing level and internal infrastructure every year and finally to showcase the sport in Valencia like it has never been seen before. This is important for the longevity of the sport in the city, highlight the popularity in the number of players playing, both in Valencia and those prepared to travel to the city from across Europe and beyond, as well as hopefully bring through new young players and locals to the game.

Starting at 4pm on Thursday through to the final on Sunday afternoon, all five teams will play each other once, with the top two sides following these matches playing a final at 1pm Sunday.

If you are in Valencia, make sure you pass by and show your support. The bar will be open throughout the tournament and the weather looks great! Check out the match schedule below!
