The Wembley Super 8 cricket carnival

Launched in 2010, this rapidly growing sporting event aims to nurture the social and community participation of the youth through the game of cricket. Participants between the ages of 16 and 25 compete in a format styled after the IPL franchise system. The first tournament saw over 10 000 visitors raise over R150 000 to aid victims of the tsunami in Haiti. In 2011, with Abdullah Gangraker’s sponsorship the tournament was an equally resounding success, with the Kalusta Super Chargers reprising their dominance of the previous event. The impact of the tournament has spanned far beyond the playing field, forging bonds between the young and old that are so often missing in modern society, and leading many of the participants to become involved in social upliftment and community tuition programs.

The next tournament is scheduled to run on the 12th and 19th of February 2012 at Rygate Sports Ground. The tournament will be further enhanced with fun new activities, along with great Wembley food.
