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.
