California Cricket Academy, opened their sixth cricket facility in Warm Springs in Fremont, the organization announced in a press release on May 2, 2013.
"[Fremont] is known as a 'hot bed' for cricket development," said Kinjal Buch, President of CCA, because the city borders three cities that are active in cricket - Milpitas, San Jose and Fremont.
Anu Natarajan, the Vice Mayor of Fremont, told those assembled that it was great to be among a group of volunteers who were so dedicated to the game. "The city is aware of the cricket community's needs here in Fremont. We are looking at several opportunities to find permanent facilities for cricket including two cricket grounds," said Natarajan (pictured right). Local Junior Baseball League coordinator, Mr. Vic Longford, who worked with CCA to help open the cricket facility, also attended the ceremony.
"By working hand in hand with baseball organizers, we set an example of how community leaders can work together and support each other", said Buch.
KeyPoint Credit Union, CCA's sponsor, commended CCA on the occasion noting that CCA had achieved phenomenal success in providing facilities to teach Cricket to youth. "Our Executive Management Team congratulates CCA on the new practice nets in the Warm Springs area during their 10 year anniversary, said Helen Jones, SVP of KeyPoint.
Mahesh Nihalani, an advisor to the CCA Board, said: "I am happy and proud to see that CCA has progressed so much in the last 10 years in promoting Cricket to school children here in the Bay Area," said Nihalani. "We need to work hard to make it part of the School curriculum," he said.
