We are going to be in Kerkyra on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September before a week on Paxos.  Would anybody happen to know whether there's any cricket scheduled for the Sunday?  

Many thanks,

Sam.

Matches are usually at Gouvia now; there are some English club sides scheduled to visit in September but I cannot see dates. If you visit http://www.cricketcorfu.com/ you will find information and an email address you can contact. Hope this helps.

Sam if you were there a week earlier you could have caught the ICC European Division 2  T20 Championship. It runs from 3rd to the 8th September. All the matches will be played outside Corfu Town at Gouvia, Ropa Valley and Messonghi.

The pitch in Corfu Town is now only used - as far as I am aware - for exhibition, tourist and schools matches. Even the latter is only for younger age groups because of the damage the ball can cause to cars! Cricket has become even more popular on Corfu in recent years.

That's a very good question? I suspect there's a 'typo' on the official Championship Website.  I am waiting for a reply from Cricket Corfu.

I'll let you know.

Thank you one and all.  Very useful information indeed.  I shall report back some time in September.  In the meantime, I shall look on with wonder at the pockets of local information that spring up on this forum, and smile.

All best,

Sam.
