This is a social grade played on Monday and Tuesday evenings starting at 6pm.

Teams are 8-a-side and games are 14 overs per side. All games are on artificial wickets either at our home ground, Colin Maiden Park, or at a venue close by. All gear is provided by the Club.

Separate competitions run pre- and post-Xmas.

Season dates

The start and finish dates vary according to grade.  The playing dates can be found on our Club Calendar >>.
