Edgbaston came alive with a carnival of colour, music and cricket as the Club celebrated the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi with a fun cricket competition.

Around 80 people took part in the Vaisakhi Cricket Cup at Edgbaston’s indoor centre – including many women and children who are new to the sport – as mixed teams played off in a softball tournament.

The action was accompanied by bhangra beats from Birmingham Sikh drumming group Eternal Taal, while a lunch was provided for all entrants.

It’s the first time Edgbaston has staged a Vaisakhi event and, following the success of the inaugural competition, the Club plans to develop it over coming years.
