Inter-Hunt Cricket Match Saturday 13th July at Brightling.

It is just over two weeks away from The Inaugural Inter Hunt Cricket and Rounders Tournament on Saturday 13th July at Brightling Park, TN32 5HG (Free Entry). It has been decided that the first year will just be between The East Sussex and Romney Marsh and The Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt so that we can see how the day works out. The sport will start at 1:30 PM.

The day will include:

Cricket
There will be a cricket match consisting of 11 players a side. This will be Twenty Overs (6 balls an over which will be about an hour and twenty minutes a side) and everyone has to bowl. Batting wise you cannot get out first ball and you have to retire if you reach 25. Players are going to have a £5 match fee which will go straight to the hunts.

Rounders
This is for the ladies/ girls. The East Sussex have a large continent of female hunt followers who want to play. I believe this will be 9 a side (can be larger if more people want to play from both hunts). We will do mixed rounders if we cannot get a full team.

Tug of War
Jack Henty from the East Sussex has organised for a Tug of War team to be involved too. Terrier Boys, Large Farmers we need you!!

Boat Race (Downing Pints Relay Race)
The most important discipline- we cannot lose!!!

On the Side
We have got music so that the sport should be played in more of a party (Twenty-Twenty style) atmosphere.
There is a pay Bar and there will also be a BBQ. (for which there will be a small charge)
