Property dealers cricket tournament has begun today. First match has to take place at 4pm today between Enem Estate and Lucky Associates. It was the first day of the tournament so took some time to start the match. Tournament begins with the recitation of Quran and Naat. Then a little note by Mr. Khurram Rajpot and then it begins…
In first match Lucky Associates wins the toss and choose to bat first. In first over management has taken a batsman out of the ground (I believe they would be verifying whether he is a property dealer or not)
40 teams has signed up for the tournament. Management has made eight (8) pools with five teams in each pool. Every team has to play at least four matches i.e. one match with every team in his certain pool. Afterwards one team from each pool will come up to fight for the quarter final matches and so on.
Tomorrow first match at 4 pm is between Property Point Friends v/s M.M.Marketing
Property market of Bahria Town is little slow so every property dealer is practising for the cricket tournament. Property dealers are booking Sector D cricket ground on daily basis.
Normal rates of Sector D cricket ground (Aleem Dar Cricket Academy) is Rs. 7,000/- on weekdays and Rs. 12,000/- on weekends for full day. (I’ve heard this rates from a person working in cricket ground) well right now due to heavy demand of booking Bahria Town cricket ground management has raised their rates and booking grounds at like Rs. 8,000/- for two hours, yes just for two hours, which means one match only.
I’ve been to ground and it is really occupied and everyone is trying to get a booking. I believe this would happen until the Bahria Town property dealers tournament and then it will come back to it’s normal rates.
So until the tournament it is hard to get a booking for full day. Let’s see what happens next…
There are lots of property dealers in Bahria Town. Actually when any good society launches and go well in business then there is a big role of property dealers over there (check out the history of DHA). When there are property dealers they bring their investors to the society and further if society fulfil his promises then it grows as Bahria Town is growing.
