The first wicket is now ready, and was trialled in the Vinohrady vs Barbarians friendly on April 13th.
The second wicket was completed in August and hosted its first competitive match with the T20 League's third-place playoff between Bohemian CC and Dresden. The quality of the wickets should lead to a much higher standard of play locally!
Wins for Vinohrady and PCC
Vinohrady and PCC 1st XI ended the unbeaten records of Bohemians and Dresden respectively, throwing the league wide open after three rounds of action.
