How do the leagues work?
We organise all fixtures and all equipment you need, plus an umpire - all you need to do is turn up!
Games are played weekly and for each league, games will be at the same venue and on the same night each week.
You can enter a team or sign up as an individual player/ small group.
What time will I play each week?
Your league will run at the same time each week with different fixture start times. E.g a league running from 7.00pm-9.00pm will have start times at 7.00pm, 7.40pm and 8.20pm. We will try to rotate your start times each week to ensure fairness and are happy to take requests if you have any preferences. All fixtures are published on the fixtures section of our website at the start of each season.
How do we join a league?
How much does it cost?
Match fees vary between leagues but the average cost works out at around £7 per player - please see the leagues page for full details. For teams, fees are payable in full before the start of the season For individual players, fees must also be paid in full before the start of the season. Match fees can be paid by bank transfer or paypal.
How do we pay?
Fees can be paid online by bank transfer or by PayPal. You may have a PayPal account from buying things on ebay, but don't worry if you don't - you can still pay through PayPal with a debit or credit card even if you don't have an account.
What do we need to bring to the matches?
We provide everything you need, from the umpire to Gilbert match balls and bibs - all you need is some appropriate clothing and footwear.
What if it rains?
Games take place come rain or shine! Only in extremely wet weather or snow will games be cancelled. Team captains will be notified as early as possible on the day if a game is cancelled. Any cancelled games will be rescheduled for later in the season.
What happens if we miss a match?
It is really important that all teams are reliable to help ensure the league runs as smoothly as possible! You are expected to make every fixture and if you forfeit a game, one match fee will be taken from your deposit and given to the opposition to refund them.
What happens if the other team doesn't show up?
If this happens, we will try to arrange a friendly game for you and you will be awarded a win. If you don't play at all, match fees will be refunded.
I fancy playing some more games, is this possible?
Yes, teams are often looking for ringers to help them out each week. Just head over to our facebook group to find a game.
