Brentham Super 6s tournament

Some say three is the magic number but when it comes to cricket nothing is as sweet as the number six! So get ready to swing your willow and swig a shandy (don’t drink and drive), the Brentham 6-a-side tournament is back with a boom! Assemble your team of superstars and get ready to battle the best on Sunday 27 August.

Last year Donny’s Pocket Rockets took the gold with some explosive cricket and Richard Taper. We don’t know who will take the cup this year but we can guarantee a flood of fours and BBQ buns. Even if you’re not playing we want you to be a part of the most entertaining day of cricket all year round. Bring your family and friends and join the excitement. There will be plenty of drinks, an abundance of food and a masseuse.

There’s lots of fun for the kids too. Go up against the bowling machine and see if you can face a cool 99mph. We’ll test your skills in our Glenn McGrath Bowl out and you’ll be able to test your luck in our fun sweepstakes. 

The first game will start at 10am and the entry fee for each player is £10 (includes food and 1 drink). Your squad can have up to 12 players. The tournament will have 6 teams split into two group. Each team will play each other once and the top two teams will move into the semi-finals, losers finals and finals (starting at 6pm).
