Cricket is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world with thousands of
players at all levels and millions of devoted fans. Cricket has long been
closely associated with countries of the former British Empire – New

Following successful cricket tournaments held at the oval every year since
2006, in December 2012 and January 2013 the Three-Generation Oval
(http://cricket.threegeneration.org) will play host to some of the leading
men’s and women’s cricket teams from South East Asia, in a series of three
exciting cricket tournaments.
The devastating floods in 2011 damaged some of Bangkok’s excellent cricket
fields, forcing the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to look elsewhere. Its
decision to use Chiang Mai’s well-known facilities for the Asian Men’s
Trophy Challenge Tournament, 7-13 December, was one welcomed by David Buck,
the Director of Cricket at the Traidhos Three-Generation Cricket Academy.
Teams from Qatar, Myanmar, Singapore, China, Thailand, Bahrain and Iran will
battle it out for honours in the Tournament. Most games will be held at the
Three-Generation Oval. Other matches will be held at the Royal Chiang Mai
Golf and Cricket Resort where a brand-new turf wicket has been prepared, and
at the Chiang Mai Gymkhana Club – the oldest sporting club in Thailand.
The Three-Generation Oval will also host the ACC Women’s 20/20 Championships
from 21 January through 2 February 2013. Although originally scheduled for a
middle-eastern country, Chiang Mai was chosen as a safer alternative. Teams
from Bhutan and Thailand will travel to Chiang Mai a week earlier to train
with David Buck on the Prem Oval. Spectators will enjoy top performances by
ten women’s teams from all corners of South East Asia. [email protected]
