5 Over Community Cricket Tournament
with Murfy’s Flaw, Entertainment & Vendor Market | All Day
@ Karura Forest | OPEN TO PUBLIC
For centuries, sports fields around the world have been bringing together players from different races, genders, ages and classes. Sporting events are participatory and SAMOSA uses sports as a powerful tool to bring about inclusiveness, confidence, leadership and cooperation.
Sporting activities have also brought individuals and communities together and have helped to bridge ethnic and cultural divides, promote social integration and foster tolerance. Sporting competitions have also helped to reduce tension and generate dialogue in some instances.
Sport teaches the value of effort and how to manage victory, as well as defeat. When the convening powers of sports are emphasized, sport becomes a powerful vehicle through which the SAMOSA message can be actualized.
The SAMOSA 2012 Sports program will focus on bringing people of all backgrounds together on the playing field to celebrate one of society’s most important activity – Play!
