NETBALL – Ms. Sharika Booso (Secretary)
The CMCC organized a Netball Carnival on 23rd September 2017, to commemorate the 145th Anniversary of the Club. This was a unique tournament where six games starts simultaneously at a single blow of a whistle and ends the same way. This concept is the first time in the history of Netball introduced in the country. Singapore and Malaysia follow this method in their tournaments, and this was introduced to us by the former National Coach, Mrs. Hycinth Wijesinghe, who is our Tournament Consultant. The final was won by The Army Netball Team and runner-up were the HNB Netball Team in the women’s category and Schools that came to the finals was won by Maliyadeva Girls School, Kurunegala and runner-up were Holy Family Convent, Kurunegala. Mrs. Rosy Senanayake was the chief guest and gave away the prizes. This was held in a Carnival atmosphere with lots of food stalls with Malay delicacy, entertainment, etc. and was a grand success. Many thanks goes to the Mrs. Hycinth Wijesinghe, the Youth of the CMCC, Ex-Committee members and other members for their unstinted support and co-operation to make the event a success. We also appreciate all the teams that participated in the tournament giving their best in highlighting the tournament to the maximum. Limited number of Polo Fabric T-shirts were sold at the event to mark the 145th Anniversary of the Club. There was a musical show held after the event our ever loving Ronnie Leitch and Luke Henricus entertained the crowd till late night.
