Captain tells his story

Quinton Kannemeyer (35), proud captain of Vredenburg/Saldanha Cricket Club’s (VBSCC) first team, has his sights firmly set on leading his team to many more victories.

Kannemeyer recently spoke to Weslander in an insightful conversation that touched on various topics, such as his passion for cricket, how he keeps fit as well as some of his favourite hobbies.

Kannemeyer was born in Vredenburg and attended Jurie Hayes primary.

He then went to Weston Secondary for one year and finished his school career at Vredenburg High School.

He currently works at Kumba Iron ore.

“I just loved the satisfying feeling in hitting a ball, for some it may sound strange, but it feels great,” says Kannemeyer when asked what sparked his inspiration for becoming a cricket player.

He adds that he cannot recall the exact date that he discovered this passion but he remembers a key moment was when he played in the Bakers mini cricket games back in primary school.

“I have been playing competitive cricket from the age of 11, where my first tournament was at the Stellenbosch u-12 SP Rossouw cricket week,” says Kannemeyer.

He adds that his hobbies include bodyboarding and cycling.

Kannemeyer also says that Taken is ranked among his favourite movies and that he mostly watches sport.

Virat Kohli and Roger Federer are among his sporting heros.

“I like Kohli’s determination and hunger for excellence in his game and the way he adapts when he’s playing in other countries outside India; he performs everywhere,” explains Kannemeyer.

His fitness routine consists of cycling, morning runs as well as spending some time in the gym.

“I’m a dad of two very young boys and they do take a lot of my time, so I try to be active four times in a week.”

He adds that he does not wish to play provincial cricket, but is fully committed to doing his best for his team and help lead them to the club championships.

VBSCC has been in existence for 29 years and is second on the Boland Premier league log.
