CRICKET

Tennis balls, rubbish bin wickets and fences may not feature in most games of cricket, but that is about to change in Masterton.

For four years Wairarapa Cricket has developed and run a BYC [back yard cricket] programme in secondary schools, and now they are bringing it to the masses.

The competition will be run on Thursday nights and will begin on November 22, with a full draw to be finalised once entries are confirmed.

The matches will be played at Queen Elizabeth Park, where all equipment will be supplied and two arenas will be set up to host matches.

Games will be 30 minutes long, with six players per side and a minimum of two females in each team.

Some of the more common BYC rules will apply to the matches, including six and out, one hand one bounce and double runs.

It is $90 a team to enter and the competition will run across four Thursdays, finishing on December 13.

Those wishing to enter a team can contact [email protected] or [email protected], by Monday, November 19.
