The annual Cheriton 6-a-side cricket  trophy, sponsored by the Flower Pots Inn,  will again be contested on Monday 29th August. The prestigious tournament –  now in its 18th year – is played from 9am to dusk. Eight teams compete in two group competitions, then semi-finals and the final. 
Joining the hosts Cheriton, are: Bishops Waltham, Fair Oak Rangers, Hambledon, Ropley, Tichborne Park, St Cross and Ventnor.
Play commences at 09:00 with two round robin leagues of four teams  each.  There is almost continuous play with each match interlaced with the following game.  
Each game is five overs per innings with each fielder bowling except the wicket keeper. Batsmen retire at 25 but often return 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 wear coloured strip and even the balls this year will be coloured orange and yellow! Play is non-stop, with 12 games in the league stage followed by knock-out semi-finals and the grand final at 6.30 pm.
Some years over 1200 runs are scored!
The event receives generous sponsorship from:
