Indoor Cricket in Gloucestershire continues to grow from strength to strength with two forms now being played across the county - Indoor Cricket Sportshall & ECB Indoor Cricket (ECBIC).
Indoor Cricket (Sportshall)
In this version of the game there are now 4 leagues up and running in the Gloucestershire. With coverage across the county there are now opportunities for all to continue their cricketing participation throughout the winter months. The following links give more information about each of the leagues including venue details, fixtures for the season and updated league tables. Winners from each of these leagues will also compete against each other to become the Gloucestershire representative at the Regional and potentially National finals.
National Indoor Cup
County Winners Hatherley and Reddings CC represented Gloucestershire at the National Indoor Cup Competition. Unfortunately they were beaten in the first round of the competition by a strong Bridgwater side (please see scorecard below).
Bridgwater 77-6 (Coles 19, Vickery 13, extras 19, S. Coote 2-18, Soma 1-21)
Hatherley and Reddings 47-6 (S. Coote 12, extras 17, Hallaran 2-12, Butt 2-4)
Bridgwater won by 30 runs and progressed to the next stage of the National Cup.
Indoor Cricket (ECBIC)
In Gloucestershire we are fortunate to have one of the Indoor Centres that drives ECBIC leagues - Action Indoor Sports in Bristol. The GCB actively supports this league and hopes it will become a form of the game that will continue to develop, for both adults and juniors alike.
