As you may be aware we have had to unexpectedly adjust the dates for our annual 8-a-Side Tournament. Initially planned for a September 15th kickoff our opener will now take place on October 27th culminating in the final night of November 30th.
This decision was taken in light of the recent approach by Cricket West Indies to host this year's regional Super 50 tournament. The cricket will provide the Club with much-needed revenue from ground rental, as well as reinforce our relationship with Cricket West Indies and the Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board.
It should be noted as well that the Super 50 competition was moved from it's usual place in the calendar, January, to facilitate player selection for next year's Cricket World Cup. We expect strong crowd turnouts as all the star players from throughout the region will be on show as their performances will determine their selection. We do not expect this tournament to impact the timing of future 8-a-Side Tournaments until possibly the next CWC.
Lastly, we wish to point out that in light of the foregoing we have taken the decision (i) to reopen registration, and (ii) that the late registration fee will be waived.
We urge all non-registered players to register ASAP using the following link: http://www.qpcc.com/members.asp

Thanks and regards,
"Proud to be a Parkite"
