Kaatsen, Men

Date11 June 1928 — 14:30
StatusOlympic (non-medal)
LocationCricketveld, Amsterdam
Participants6 from 1 countries

The Dutch Federation for Kaatsen appointed two teams, one from Friesland - the province where the sport is most popular - and one from the Noord- and Zuid-Holland provinces. The match, held on the cricket pitch outside the Olympic stadium, drew quite a crowd. The “Algemeen Handelsblad” noted the Frisian play was rather poor, but praised the Holland team for their performance. Wijngaarden and crew opened up a gap to 5-3 by winning the 7th and 8th game. At 4-4 in the 10th game, a double play resulted in the victory for Wijngaarden, Van der Meulen and Harkema. By then, most of the audience had already fled, owing to a rain shower plaguing the match.
