Dan Hawes is kindly organising the BBQ, we will be selling beef and chicken burgers at £3 and hot dogs at £2. Sorry, we are unable to offer a vegetarian option but if you want to bring a vegeburger or something and are ok to share the BBQ with meat we will be happy to cook it for you. Payment via cash or bank transfer (details will be made available).

Here is the lineup and batting / bowling order for the parents vs kids game.

The match fee for each parent / child pairing is £20, either in cash on the evening, or via bank transfer.

We’ll be playing “pairs” format so everyone gets an equal go at bowling and batting, here is a summary of the rules.

  • We will play with a softball so no pads are required
  • Each player bowls one over of 10 balls (akin to the new “100” format)
  • Each batting pair play for 2 overs (parents will face kids and vice versa), a total of 12 overs per innings
  • Every wicket will be -5 runs and the batsmen swap ends
  • 2 runs for no balls and wides, with no additional ball bowled
  • No LBWs
  • Batting teams start with 100 runs

Whilst the weather isn’t especially warm, it is set to be dry. I look forward to seeing you there.
