CRICKET fans from up and down the Costa del Sol will be flocking down to the Oval this month… the Cartama Oval that is!
They will be attending Andalucia’s first charity cricket festival from September 27 to 29.
Raising money for local cancer charity Cudeca, the three day festival also aims to raise the profile of cricket in southern Spain.
“The Cartama Oval is an incredible place,” explains Yorkshireman Tim Meal, 57, from Alora. “Few people realise we have a league playing almost every weekend here.
“There are players from eight nationalities ranging from aged 19 to 70, yet most people have no idea about us.”
The games are free to watch and there will be a raffle with many prizes.
