NUMBER OF PLAYERS
Each team is made up of 8 players for each game. It is advised that each team have between 8 to 10 players to allow
The age groups are from Under 8 to Under 17 (inclusive). The age group of each team will be determined by the oldest
All teams will initially graded as per their age group. The first four weeks of the competition will enable us to regrade
UNDER 8/9/10 COMPETITION
In order to ensure that our younger cricketers learn the game of indoor cricket, the centre provides 2 staff members (which includes the umpire) to oversee their games. In doing so it allows the games to run more smoothly and ensures that every child is getting a fair go and feels included in the games.
However, it is still required that these teams have a manager/team organiser to oversee the administration of the team.
Castle Hill Indoor Sports place an emphasis that all our competitions are played for fun and that the social aspects of cricket are of great importance to the game. This is particularly the case with our U8/9/10 competition.
The only uniform requirement is that each player musr wear at least one batting glove when they are batting.
It is also strongly advisable that all players wear a 'protector' (particularly when batting)
All cricket balls, wicketkeeping gloves, and umpires will be provided by the sports centre.
There will be a limited number of cricket bats available for use, so it is strongly advised that each team brings along their own cricket bats.
DURATION OF GAMES AND COMPETITION
All games will be approximately for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The games will consist of 16 overs (6 ball overs) for each team.
Each player will bat with a partner for 4 overs, and will also bowl 2 overs each.
The competition will run for 15 weeks plus 2 weeks of finals
CONDUCT TOWARDS OFFICIALS AND PLAYERS
Castle Hill Indoor Sports promotes all competitions to be played in a fun and social manner. Therefore we will not accept any abusive or negative attitudes towards any officials or players that participate in our competitions.
