Allegra Teams (players and supporters)
of the most unusual cricketing event in the calendar,
It is a special kind of game played at the Cricket on Ice tournament, demanding quite a lot from the players. Fast reactions, both physical and mental, in extreme conditions are required for each match, lasting approximately 3 hours. Exciting shots, fast-bowled deliveries, cricket balls flying as quick as arrows, spectacular acrobatic leaps & dives to catch the ball, all combined with the almost elegant use of the bat...welcome to Cricket on Ice!
On Lake St. Moritz, the game is slightly different to traditional cricket. For the safety of the bemused spectators we use a low-impact cricket ball (a traditional leather ball gets wet, heavy and unpredictable on the snow-covered ice).
But beware, due to the high altitude, air resistance is less and the ball travels further in the air.
On behalf of the Cricket on Ice organising committee, enjoy this unique event.
President, St Moritz Cricket Club
