The Vanuatu Cricket Association is super proud to host the women’s World Cup qualifier EAP 2019, the biggest womens sports event Vanuatu has ever hosted.
Saturday evening officially opened the tournament with a special evening at the Holiday Inn. What a great evening it was with almost 100 athletes from PNG, Fiji, Samoa, Indonesia Japan and Vanuatu. The Australian High Commissioner, representatives from different business houses, our sponsors and cricket friends showed their support and bought tickets/sponsored tables.
Highlight of the evening was guest speaker Holly Ferling (invited by ICC and sponsored by the Australian High Commission). Holly made her debut for the Australian national woman’s cricket team in 2013. She shared her experiences, ups and downs in a very motivational, pragmatic and humorous way. She clearly inspired the audience. Our ”’own” cricketer, Marcelina Mete, closed the evening with the launch of her song “Vanuatu Blong Mi”.
The tournament opened yesterday.
