All Saints cricket team plays a series of very friendly matches against other churches. These take place in May, June and July each year, usually on Saturday afternoons.
All players are welcome, whether you’re a keen cricketer or haven’t played for some time, or a novice. We have also appreciated the spritely involvement of teenage children and godchildren and venerable parents-in-law.
The matches are very social, last 3–3.5 hours, 25 overs a side with a limit on the number of overs for each bowler and an enforced retirement should a batsmen get to 25 Runs, so everyone can get a game with bat or ball.
We usually play our home games at one of the Barn Elms pitches, which is a very pleasant and open space for families to have a nice afternoon out and spectate. We abide by all the Covid regulations for the safe playing of cricket.
There is a match fee of £5 which covers the pitch charge. If you're interested in playing, then please get in touch with the captain Harry Gostelow. email@example.com
