In Alpine fields where snowdrops bloom,
And mountains loom in quiet plume,
A bat strikes true, a ball takes flight,
Cricket in Switzerland, a wondrous sight.

Where yodels blend with leather's crack,
And echoes answer, sending back,
The game of willow, foreign, rare,
Finds home in valleys crisp and fair.

Men and women, whites adorned,

On verdant pitches, they've sworn,
To play the game with heart and might,
Beneath the peaks, in summer light.

In this land of clocks and chimes,
A sport from warmer, distant climes,
Finds a place, a chance to grow,
In Switzerland, where cool winds blow.

The Cricalpiner's spirit : One Team, One Dream


Cricket is a gentleman's game. The sport in itself and the bonhomie with which the game is played makes it super exciting and encourages teamwork, competitive fun and friendship.


We are a group of 'tennis ball' cricket enthusiasts living in and around Zurich. Every weekend and especially Sunday mornings, we come together to play this beautiful sport. Come peak summer, we try to sneak in weekdays in the evenings, post work. In the winter, we play indoors across the city. We also take part in tennis ball cricket tournaments played across Switzerland.


So, friends ! As much as we cherish the tinkling cow-bells in this graphic alpine valley, we simply love the cricket-bails too making the woody clamour when flipped both ways by a googly or the wrong one.  


Join us as we welcome you to play this thrilling game.


Welcome to Cricalps!
