The family friendly community sports event, which attracted 700 people, was run under COVID Safe Plan regulations.


In 2017, KSS Club first started out as a group of friends who were spectators at Super Sixers cricket tournaments.


A year later, they held their first tournament, where all the Punjabi youth chipped in to make it possible and received a fantastic response from players.


The club came to the realisation that there was a lack of connectivity between Indians living in the local region.


So, Cairns Punjabi News was started to connect their people and their sole purpose was to support the tournament. 


All year, they work for sponsors through their Facebook page, and in return these sponsors donate generously for the tournament, which has made it such a successful event today.


KSS Club especially wanted to thank all their sponsors, Five Rivers Construction Group, Integrity New Homes, Singh Plantation, Beeba Boys Cairns, Sandhu Farm Australia, Saabi Kular Australia, Maan Plantation Innisfail, The Great Flavour of India Innisfail, Arcella Bananas Tropicana, Punjabi Boys, Dyal Bananas, Spicy Bite Bar and Restaurant, Sran Agro, Sundown, Golewala Boys, Sidhu Banana Farm Innisfail, Garradunga Bananas, Marinades Indian Cuisine, Grewal Bananas, Sandhu & Bajwa Farms, Gajni Bananas Silkwood, Dhother Bananas, Sahota Farms, Indian Brothers Restaurant, and Tax Planet.
