The annual Cheriton 6-a-side cricket trophy, sponsored by the Flower Pots Inn, was contested on Monday 30th August. The prestigious tournament – now in its 17th year – was played from 9am to dusk. Eight teams competed in two group competitions, then semi-finals and the final. Joining the hosts Cheriton are: Bishops Waltham, Fair Oak Rangers, Hambledon, Ropley, Tichborne Park, Ventnor and making their 6s debut this year – St Cross.
Play commenced at 09:00 with two round robin leagues of four teams each. There was almost continuous play with each match interlaced with the following game. Each game was five overs per innings with each fielder bowling except the wicket keeper. A few batsmen retired at 25 and some returned to bat again. There are many variations on the standard game e.g. 3 runs for a wide and no extra ball except in the final over of an innings. More details in the rules .
The players wore coloured strip and even the balls this year were coloured pink! There were 12 games in the league stage followed by knock-out semi-finals and the grand final at 6.30 pm. All matches were of 5 overs a side – one bowled by each of the fielders. This year over 1650 runs were scored!
