Variations to schedule

In the event of bad weather, the competition can either be condensed into a shorter period (e.g. playing three matches on one day) or it can be relocated to the indoor sports hall on the site.

 

If only three teams participate, the competition will take the form of a league in which each team plays the others twice, with no final: a total of four matches per team. 

If only two teams participate, the competition will take the form of a bilateral series between the two teams: two T20 internationals and a single One Day International (50 overs per side).

If only one team participates, we will provide a series of matches against famous teams from the UK, such as the MCC, the Club Cricket Conference and the Authors. 

How to book

A non-refundable deposit of £1200 (£100 per player) secures a place in the tournament for your team (12 people). Additional players or guests may be added at any time up to 48 hours before the tournament. No deposit is required for additional players or guests. If we cancel the tournament, your deposit is 100% refundable.

Please contact Kit Harris with enquiries or to reserve your place.
