The tournament will be played in the exciting Twenty20 cricket format.
The ACF Tournament Committee will arrange for special hotel rates for
all attendees and will also assist with finding the best airfare deals
for any participating leagues that request such assistance with
adequate notice. Local logistics and tournament coordination are being
handled by the ACF in conjunction with the Southern California Cricket
Association. Leagues interested in participating should write to firstname.lastname@example.org
by August 31, 2012. Playing rules, terms and conditions will be made
available on request. A nominal fee of $300 per team will be charged
to cover cost of colored clothing.
The Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation in partnership with
the Southern California Cricket Association maintains four world class
cricket grounds at the Woodley Park Cricket Complex. "Besides the
Hollywood scene, the beaches and mountains, Los Angeles provides a host
of events within close proximity. You can play a game of cricket during
the day, attend a basketball game or a live theater show and still
visit the pier at Santa Monica," Kamal Azeez, President of SCCA said.
"It is our goal to create a national event structure that we can all be
proud of and we believe in the spirit of volunteering," Leighton
Greenidge, Convenor of the ACF Steering Committee said. Those willing
to assist with marketing, sponsorships, logistics, hospitality and
other aspects of tournament organization are requested to write to email@example.com.
ACF said that it was planning to organize women's and youth cricket
tournaments on natural turf during the 2012-13 season. Plans for those
tournaments will be announced shortly.
