Ever dreamed of playing alongside the stars of Yorkshire County Cricket Club on the world famous hallowed turf at Headingley? Take part in our bid to play auction and that dream could become reality!
We have five places to bid for, you can either bid on an individual place or get a team of mates together to bid for the full five places, the highest bids will gain the places alongside a current YCCC player and take part in our 6 -a -side cricket day that will be taking place on Friday 9th May.
The day is fully inclusive as you will enjoy breakfast rolls on arrival, a BBQ style lunch and complimentary bar of beer, wine and soft drinks throughout the day. Played in a tournament style, each team bats for six overs in pairs per match, if a batsmen is out during this period you’ll lose runs and the team with the most runs at the end of the match wins and goes through to the next round until ultimately the final is played. A fantastic opportunity to showcase those undiscovered cricketing talents or to simply enjoy the chance to play on a world renowned international cricket pitch, make sure you don’t miss out on this wonderful event!
