Taquanta supports Calypso Cricket’s 25th year

December 2015

Sporting Chance celebrated its 25th year of running the annual Calypso Cricket Festival on Muizenberg beach, and Taquanta was proud to support this worthy event for the fourth consecutive year running.

Calypso Cricket is a unique and fun adaptation of conventional cricket. Utilising most of the rules of cricket, the game is played on the beaches with two teams of ten players each. This competitive sport originated in the West Indian islands and is played between different villages that gather in their hundreds for the event. It has proven to be an exciting way of introducing young children to the game of cricket.

This December, thousands of children were bussed to the beach from various communities in the Western Cape including amongst others Langa, Manenberg and Ocean View, to pit their cricketing skills against one another
