New Delhi: In a bizarre yet hilarious incident, a cricket club in Surrey (UK) created a women’s Tinder profile to invite new players to join their club. The Englefield Green Cricket Club posted the advertisement as a 36-year-old female. The post had a profile picture and a bio. The image showed a beer glass near the boundary fence with a cricket match in the background. The club gave the details of recruitment in the bio.
“George, 36, looking for new players for Englefield cricket club.”
“Email: email@example.com. Twitter: @Egcc1. Insta: englefieldgreencc,” the bio read. The photos of the Tinder profile went viral over social media platforms, with netizens giving some hilarious reactions.
“At 36, your team is going to be full of truly single 30+ men. I would love to see that slip cordon!,” a fan wrote.
“You have to be creative these days,” @RussKinks added while @SteRummerz commented: “Not a bad idea that fellas, probably would get more likes than a 36-year-old account and we need a women’s team for funding so leave it to me,” read a Tweet from another fan.
