AS well as full Saturday league programmes, there is plenty of Sunday cricket to look forward to this weekend.
Bristol YMCA, for example, are hosting a full day of girls’ cricket activity based around the World Cup.
Three teams are taking part in a six-a-side under-9 soft ball festival, while 16 under-11 sides have signed up for an eight-a-side event plus there is also a fun softball challenge for mums.
To tie in with Sunday’s World Cup clash between Australia and India, which will be shown in the clubhouse, samosas and burgers will be on sale.
And visitors can also enjoy a range of coaching masterclasses plus fun games. The event starts at 9.45am and has an anticipated finish of 4pm.
In the men’s game, meanwhile, Bristol host Swansea in a group semi-final in the ECB’s Royal London Club Championship (1pm).
The game was due to be staged at St Helen’s but the venue is not available as it is being used by Glamorgan.
The winners of the clash at Failand will be home to Bath or Potterne for a place in the last 16.
The grand final takes place at Lord’s on September 16.
Sunday also sees the regional finals of The Cricketer Village Cup with Frocester welcoming Corse & Staunton in the Gloucestershire play-off and Aston Ingham entertaining Colwall in the Herefordshire and Powys group (both 1pm).
And Bristol West Indian Phoenix open their bid for glory in this season’s Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Cup with a home tie against Cheltenham Civil Service (1.30pm).
