HSV Cricket participated in Lenzsiedlung's Nachbarschaftsfest 2008 and had arranged Cricket training sessions for the festival visitors.
As a kids' football tournament was being played on the other half of the same ground, it was not an easy task to gather and attract people for cricket. Still HSV Cricket organisers Mr. Khalid Rauf and Mr. Muhammad Bilal along with young and energetic youth Mr. Jawad Asghar did a marvelous job in conducting the training.
They met with different groups of people in the festival, explained to them the concepts and showed them how to play. All in all many young girls as well as boys took part in training and afterwards special HSV Cricket training certificates were awarded to the participants by Mr. Ali Asghar (the regional in charge of Deutsch - Pakistanisches - Forum).
Though it took tireless efforts on HSV Cricket organisers part, they did pay off and cricket came out as winner.
