Overall, the objective remains to maximise the quality and sharing the participation in cricket.


The precise format and rules will reflect the number of entries received, and will be shared along with the match schedule at the end of April.
There is a limit as to the number of teams that can be accommodated in each age group.


The plan is to run a very tight schedule to maximise the length of three matches simultaneously on three cricket groungs and give them more opportunity to play.

Players will be restricted to play in one team only and over-age players are discouraged & subject to certain restrictions. However, entries for combined teams are welcomed.
Caterers will provide lunches on each day of the tournament & lunch vouchers will be provided to team members (players, coaches), but not for spectators.

Accommodation is the responsibility of the teams attending.
