Virtual Table Cricket Competition
Starting this week (17 May) we’re introducing the inaugural Virtual Table Cricket Competition with the aim of running it until the end of the academic year.
The competition is made up of a series of challenges, with a new challenge starting every two weeks. We’ll share the results for each individual challenge, as well as an overall leader board on the Lord’s Taverners social media channels on the completion of each challenge, with scoring for the overall leader board for schools taking part working as follows:
- 10 points for taking part
- 5 points for winning a challenge
- 3 points for coming second in a challenge week
- 1 point for coming third in a challenge week
Schools can complete the challenges during regular sessions delivered by our county boards or independently where schools run table cricket sessions themselves, whichever works best for the groups taking part.
The format of the competition is aiming to replicate the game of table cricket with each challenge involving six participants and six balls with all challenges covering the three main table cricket skills – batting, bowling and fielding.
Our first challenge will be batting. Each of the six participants will get six balls to try and score as many runs as possible. The ball should not be bowled, rather it should be static and placed in the middle of the batting crease.
Good luck to everyone taking part.
