The Edgewater Resort and Spa would like to congratulate its partner Cook Islands Cricket for recently winning two International Cricket Council awards. The first award recognised volunteer of the year Taoi Nooroa for his services to cricket on Mangaia and the second for Marketing and Promotion in bringing the Yahoo! NZ Knights first class team to Rarotonga for a preseason training camp which included an historic Twenty20 match against the Cook Islands national team.
Crickets CEO Alister Stevic was thrilled at picking up the two awards “it’s great recognition and reward for all the hard work undertaken across the country by our volunteers and corporates in developing cricket. Special thanks needs to be paid to Chris McGeown, Emile Kairua and the entire team at The Edgewater Resort and Spa whose foresight and support was the key catalyst in Cook Islands Cricket achieving this award. Simply put, if it wasn’t for Edgewater’s support we simply could not have afforded to bring the Yahoo! NZ Northern Knights to Rarotonga and our players wouldn’t have experienced the historic match against professional cricketers”. Cook Islands Cricket now goes into the ICC Global awards which are to be announced in early March – good luck guys!
