A great day at the club on Saturday as we hosted a large number of guests from the South Africans in Paris (“SAiP”) group for the day, which included a fantastic traditional South Africans “braai” BBQ.
As part of the festivities, a social T20 cricket match was arranged between a SAiP team and a SAC team comprising a mix of seasoned veterans, newcomers, and up-and-coming juniors. Great fun was had by all, with the South Africans team just pipping the SAC team for the honours at the end of the day. Star performances from SAC with the ball from juniors Alex Russell and Hugo Marrison.
After the match and the BBQ we all headed upstairs to the bar to finish the day with a beer and watch the South African rugby team beat England. A perfect ending to the day for our South African friends!
Thanks to Mario for making it happen, and to Nisseem (SAC cricket) and Bushy (SAiP) for their efforts organising.
