Mike Krefta, Chief Executive Officer, Hiscox Bermuda, said, “Hiscox is once again delighted to be sponsoring the Hiscox Celebrity Cricket Festival, now in its 10th year. This event was the brainchild of our current Chairman, Rob Childs, as a way to celebrate Bermuda’s 400th anniversary in 2009.

“The celebrity cricket day is a day the players and their families all look forward to. The support of so many senior island figures in giving up their time to support our young girls and boys the cricketers is part of making the day so special. The event sets an example to our future leaders some of whom we hope will come from these fantastic young players.”

Lloyd Smith, President of the Bermuda Cricket Board, said, “We are very excited to be able to celebrate our long partnership with Hiscox with the 10th annual 11&U Celebrity Cricket Festival. I am also proud to recognise a current young national squad player, Charles Trott, who actually played in the inaugural event in 2009.

“Hiscox have supported our U11 league since 2006 and since that time we have enjoyed well over 1,000 games of cricket for our primary school boys and girls. In addition to thanking Hiscox for their investment in our community and national sport, I would like to thank the many sponsors who donated raffle prizes. All the money raised from the raffle goes directly to the Youth Development Program.

“I look forward to continuing our partnering with Hiscox and many more great family events for years to come. So, if you enjoy cricket and are looking for a great family event, come out and bring your kids or grandkids and spend the day with us.”
