"It is with great happiness and pride, we announce the first ever Women's Cricket Club in Switzerland, the Zurich Sapphires Cricket Club (ZSCC). Sapphire of heavenly blue signifies the height of celestial hope and faith, and is believed to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight. It is a symbol of power and strength, but also of kindness and wise judgment. What started off end of last year as a hobby for us women trying out the sport Cricket, has now translated into forming a club. The enthusiasm for the sport, the persistence and still not forgetting to have fun are the key reasons behind the success of ZSCC.
