Koh Chang Beach Cricket Tournament 2018
Update: June 2018
After the great success of last year’s third Koh Chang Beach Cricket Tournament we are delighted to announce that this year’s fourth tournament will be held on Saturday 25th and Sunday the 26th of August 2018 on the beach at Shambhala Beach Bar at Siam Royal View in Klong Son, Koh Chang.
Visiting teams from Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai will be taking part, as well of course as Koh Chang’s local beach cricket stalwarts.
The format will be six players a side with six overs per innings so there will be lots of short and entertaining cricket matches. If you’re already a fan of this marvellous sport then you will know what to expect but if you’re new to the game then you can consider this the perfect opportunity to come and find out what on earth is going on.
It is going to be a fun event for both participants and spectators in this beautiful beachfront setting and visitors are welcome to explore the other facilities available at Siam Royal View which include a pitch-and-putt golf course, swimming pools, restaurants and bars and a yacht marina. So why not come over for a great day out? If you’re lucky the amazing ladyboy cheerleaders may agree to perform again.
There will be food and beer tents on site and the event will, of course, be free to watch. The idyllic beachfront setting with a swimming pool and delightful liquid refreshements from the swim-up bar is certainly a great place from which to spectate.
The competition will take place from 9am until 5pm on the Saturday and from 9am until the men’s and ladies finals in the middle of Sunday afternoon.
If you’d like to take part in the tournament then there may still be places for teams or individuals.
Update: September 2017
Well that was another amazing tournament. Best yet? I think so. We had sun and rain (which everyone played through without a hint of covers or lightmeters). We had amazing ladyboy cheerleaders and a Koh Chang team which after never winning a game in their history won four in a row only to fall at the last hurdle to a Lanna team who were brilliant throughout the tournament and thoroughly served the victory.
There was great food and a warm welcome provided by our hosts at Shambhala Bar and great food, drink and hospitality from 15 Palms, Taste of India and Serenity Resort.Thanks again for everyone for coming down – it’s the people who make it so much fun.
And before this turns into an Oscars awards speech why don’t we share some photos of the event with you – check ’em out below.
There are also a couple of videos of the cricket and our cheerleaders that are well worth a watch.
Will there be a 2018 tournament. Course there will! Get in touch with us to get involved.
Hope to see you all next year!
