The Hampshire Hogs Cricket Club are encouraging all cricket fans to join them at their beautiful home ground in Warnford, Hampshire for a day of high-octane six-a-side cricket.

The event will take place on Saturday 16th August, and will see 8 teams in competition. The Hogs will field an under-25 team and an over-25 team. The other sides competing will be the Hampshire Wayfarers, Stowe Templars, St Moritz Tobogganing Club, Bereleigh Bandits, Appleshaw CC and Foxtons Estate Agents. With a group stage followed by a final and semi-final, there will be plenty of on-field action to entertain visitors.

The club have teamed up with local brewery Bowman Ales to provide liquid refreshment. There will also be a Pimms’ tent,and a hog roast and barbecue. A sale of home-made cakes and other treats, as well as an ice-cream van will satisfy those with a sweet tooth. Entertainment between the matches will be provided by a DJ.

With a 127 year history, several of Hampshire’s most celebrated cricketers have been members of the club, including Channel 5 commentator Mark Nicholas and current Hampshire captain James Adams. The standard of cricket is sure to be high and Warnford is one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in Hampshire.

“This is going to be a day of great fun at our beautiful ground in Warnford and we look forward to sharing it with as many people as possible.” said Club Secretary Robert White. Entry to the ground is free of charge. Play begins at 9:30 am, and will continue throughout the day.
