The day is all about giving players a fun, sociable way to get back into cricket before outdoor leagues and ECB summer festivals get underway. We hope to have teams from all over the south west so it will also provide a great chance for clubs to play against teams who they wouldn’t normally face.”[/blockquote]
The format for the day is pairs cricket and there is no limit on squad size. Entry is £30 per team and you can confirm your team’s place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
