Kuredu’s cricket tournament!
Call us pioneers, trailblazers or trendsetters – bottom line is that Kuredu Resort & Spa, Maldives, is no cookie-cutter resort.
Our excellent team are always on the lookout for ways to make the island stand out from the crowd: the resort boasts the Maldives’ first golf course of its kind, its own water bottling plant, the Maldives’ most stunning sandbank and, foremostly, a community of loyal Kuredu ambassadors from all four corners of the earth who see this piece of paradise as their home rather than as just another resort in the Maldives.
To allow ourselves to escape the daily grind and for team building purposes (because happy team equals happy guests!), we thought of another first-timer: Kuredu’s first-ever cricket tournament on the football pitch.
The tournament was part of our mid-year staff party and saw three days of great excitement and nail-biting matches. The spectator stands were packed with supporters and after the well-received event, it goes without saying that we set about something that is bound to become a tradition.
Curious about the results?
Lakvinda from Bars was the leading batsman with 132 runs in 4 matches. Bobin, also from Bars, was awarded best bowler. The ‘Jolly Boys’ from the Bars department were the champions, the second place went to the ‘Tigers’ from Stewarding and the 3rd place to ‘Super Kings’ from the Human Resources/Security/Golf departments.
Congratulations to all 13 participating teams and the 130 team members who played a total of 19 games, scored 2,273 runs and took 79 wickets.
Wouldn’t you agree that Kuredu has got the world’s most sporty, enthusiastic, hard working and dedicated team?
