Cricket tour to Sri Lanka

On the first Sunday of the summer break the senior cricket squad set off on their tour to Sri Lanka. Over the next thirteen days the group experienced the highs and lows of playing cricket on the Indian sub-continent, as well as having the opportunity to appreciate all that Sri Lanka has to offer. They visited three different areas, travelling first to Kandy in the hills of central Sri Lanka, then to Hikkaduwa on the southern shores and finishing in the hustle and bustle of the capital, Colombo.

The team experienced playing in the Welagedera Stadium sitting at the foot of Elephant rock, as well as Dambulla International ground, before continuing along the south west coast where they stopped off at the Pinawala Elephant Orphanage. At Hikkaduwa, a visit to the 'Foundation of Goodness' was a highlight. This is a charity that has been set up to support the local community and provides education, welfare, and medical expertise, as well as running a sports academy. In Colombo the squad played their two final games and finished having won three games and lost three games during their Sri Lanka experience. 

The trip provided all those that took part with memories that will last a lifetime.
