The event was held on the 26th of May at the Evington Park Cricket Pitches in Leicester from 10am, we arranged two playing pitches to play a total of 19 games. The excitement of cricket was overwhelming with 4s and 6s hitting we played with tape ball so that everyone could participate to play on a team. We had neural Umpires from the Leicestershire Cricket League to have a more neutral feel to the games.
