Given the football and the weather, the British summer so far has been both atypical and exhilarating. With World Cup heartache now behind us (what a tournament!), we know what you’re thinking: how best to channel this sporty competitive energy, and make best use of the balmy sunshine while we’ve still got it? Our answer comes in the form of our annual charity cricket tournament, The Gecko Sixes, 2018 edition.
For those of you that haven’t been before, the day is a mini-cricket tournament which has something for everyone, from absolute beginners to seasoned cricketing pros, and ages eight to eighty. It’s 6 a-side and 5 overs per innings, so each game is both short and sweet. And like last year, we’ll be dishing out double runs for girls, so it would be wise to keep your teams mixed! Or just turn up and we can work out teams when you arrive!
It’s £10 to play and £5 to spectate, with all proceeds going to charity. As usual, there will be a heady selection of food and refreshments for sale, including all of your Sri Lankan favourites.
So what are you waiting for? Hit attend on that Facebook group and bring yourselves down to the Victoria Recreation Ground in Surbiton, London on Saturday 4th August for another day of charitable cricketing chaos. For now, we’ll leave you with our highlights reel from last year:
