Easter is the time of the year when we celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord. During this period, we celebrate family and spend quality time with all our loved ones.
We at Ibadan Metropolitan cricket club in conjunction with the University of Ibadan Cricket Club thought it wise to organise family cricket games during this period bringing together friends as well.
The idea was for us to spend quality time together as a cricket family, use the games as an awareness drive to get more people interested and a youth development initiative.
The first edition was held at the prestigious University of Ibadan cricket pitch in 2011, with a lot of guests in attendance. Souvenirs and various gift items had been donated by individuals, University of Ibadan sports council and corporate bodies to make all editions of the event memorable.
The Easter cricket is now one of the most prestigious events in the Ibadan cricket community and has continued to contribute its quota to growth of cricket in general.
