The recent upturn in the weather has our minds wandering to summer and cricket fields, and of course, our favourite annual sporting contest, the Gecko Sixes. After a disappointing show by the Sri Lankan team in the T20 World Cup, and a tough tour of England about to start, perhaps it’s time to show the pros how it’s done. Well, dust off your bats, stretch out that bowling action, and come along!
Date: Saturday 13th August, 11am – 5pm
Venue: Victoria Recreation Ground, Balaclava Road, Surbiton, London, KT6 5JL
For those who haven’t come before, the Gecko Sixes is a fun-filled day of soft-ball cricket for literally everyone – from seasoned pros to complete beginners. It’s £10 to play, with all proceeds going to charity. Each team is comprised of six people, but even if you don’t have a ready-made team, just come along and we can sort out the teams on the day. We want girls to get involved too, so girls score double runs. Matches are 5 overs per innings; it’s all action cricket! Aside from the cricket, there’ll be plenty of snacks and refreshments, including delicious Sri Lankan favourites like mutton rolls and samosas!
Here’s our video of the action from last year. We can’t wait – see you there!
