It’s back! The Gecko Sixes returns for its sixth edition this summer on Saturday 10th August at a NEW VENUE, the Victoria Recreation Ground in Surbiton. Following last year’s successful collaboration with Medical Aid to Sri Lanka, we are once again co-hosting the tournament with our partners at MASL to raise funds to support cataract surgery in Sri Lanka. More details available here .
If you havn’t already been swept up in Ashes fever or the scorching summer heat, we’ve got the perfect event to get you fully into the swing of cricket. It’s fun, it’s fast, and oh yeah, there’ll be food as well… For those who havn’t been before, the day is a six-a-side cricket tournament. Whilst competitive, it is intended to be a fun day out, with EVERYONE, and we mean EVERYONE physically capable of holding a bat and ball participating, and results not taken too seriously. To this end, all games will be played with a soft windball, and girls will score double runs. Don’t worry if you are coming on your own or in a group smaller than six people- the whole day is as much about meeting new people and having fun as it is about cricket.
Entry to participate will be just £5 per player (£3 for spectators). Refreshments will be on sale at the ground too.
Please arrive at 11am. We expect to start play at around 11.30am. Please endeavour to be prompt so we can get underway as soon as possible.
The Victoria Recreation Ground can be found within 5 minutes walking distance from Surbiton train station (National Rail from London Waterloo)
So come and join us for a fun filled day of sport, sunshine, and sixes.
