Games played with a soft ball, very similar rules to the under 9s, everyone bats, everyone bowls, intended to be very relaxed.
Likely to be suitable for players of all ages, from under 9 upwards. Soft ball means no requirement for protective equipment.
Games likely to be played as a series of mini-festivals on a Sunday afternoon, May to July. There would not be a game every week. Probably 4 teams would play in a mini festival, with each team playing 3 short games on the same afternoon, with 2 games taking place at the same time to minimise waiting between games.
We and a number of other clubs in the Hambleton League coverage area have expressed an interest in taking part, e.g. Bedale, East Harlsey, North Stainley.
We would intend to do some training/practice sessions on Friday nights at the same as junior training to get players familiar with the format.
If you are interested please speak to a junior committee member or team manager.
