If you think Twenty20 cricket takes too long then come along to the “Sixes” cricket tournament in Cheriton on August Bank Holiday Monday!

The annual Cheriton 6-a-side cricket trophy, sponsored by the Flower Pots Inn, will again be contested on Monday 27th August.  The prestigious tournament – now in its 14th year – is played from 9am to dusk. In all 8 teams are featured. Joining the hosts and holders Cheriton are SPL2 leaders Ventnor, Tichborne Park, Compton & Chandlers Ford, Fair Oak, Steep, Shinfield and making their 6s debut this year – Hampshire Hogs. 
The players wear coloured strip and even the balls this year will be coloured orange and yellow!, is non-stop, with 12 games in the league stage followed by knock-out semi- finals and the grand final at 6.30 pm.  All matches are of 5 overs a side – one bowled by each of the fielders.  Last year well over 1200 runs were scored!

Entrance is FREE and attractions at the Recreation Ground include a beer tent, hog roast, tea and cakes, children’s play area and free parking.  The 6s are a key part of the annual weekend long Flower Pots Beer Festival, conveniently located opposite the ground, where 30 plus real ales, live music, all day BBQ, and curry tent. 
No hot air balloons this year because the Mid Hants Balloon Club voluntarily cancelled due to Foot and Mouth! 

So why not come and join in the fun and keep the whole family entertained!

Again this year there is a BBQ/Hog Roast provided for all players and of course also for supporters and spectators.  There is a Beer Tent (to save you the walk across the Pots) and tea and cakes will be served in the clubhouse at various times during the day.

For families with young children, please note that there is a playground on site and that there is nearly continuous cricket!  Please keep an eye on your children, so that they do not interfere with play or endanger themselves.
