The 10th edition of the annual Abu Dhabi ARCH Cricket Tournament for schools has drawn to a close with Eton College emerging as tournament winners.

Fellow teams this year included Hampton School, KES Birmingham, Epsom College, Elizabeth College (Guernsey), MCP Academy, Dubai College and Zayed Academy.

The victorious team are pictured with their trophy at the Zayed Cricket Academy which provided outstanding facilities.

Our thanks also go to Abu Dhabi Cricket Club and Abu Dhabi Sports Council for their involvement in another superb experience for all the participating schools.

As the ARCH Tournament concept continues to grow, it will return in 2019 with the Abu Dhabi ARCH Tournament and a new European ARCH Tournament.

2019 Abu Dhabi ARCH Tournament

Next year’s Abu Dhabi ARCH Tournament will again offer two age categories and the opportunity for schools to compete internationally. It offers an established tournament format in outstanding facilities with the support of our partners Abu Dhabi Sports Council.

2019 European ARCH Tournament

Sporta Tours have partnered with the Desert Springs Resort in Spain to ensure a first-class home for the European event which will take place over three consecutive weeks in Easter 2019.

We have capacity for just five teams in each age category, so we are inviting schools to register their interest early to avoid disappointment.
