Saturday, June 2nd
The Allen Parks Foundation and the Dallas County Cricket Club will be hosting a benefit tournament to bring the world of Cricket to Allen on June 2nd, 2018. This will be a one-day only tournament and will be played on two cricket fields at Celebration Park. Proceeds from the tournament will assist the Allen Parks Foundation in its mission of enhancing the park system in Allen.
The tournament will be limited to 8 teams. Teams should have a team captain responsible for coordinating information with their members. Teams are also encouraged to have a team name and coordinated shirts. Bragging is definitely encouraged!!
Teams will include up to 10 members (minimum 6 players required per team). Cost for team registration will be $300. If you would like to play but do not have a team of 10, single players can also register on the website and the Allen Parks Foundation will try to find a team on which to place you. Single players can only be accommodated on an “as-space-available” basis. REGISTRATION DEADLINE FOR TEAMS AND INDIVIDUALS IS MAY 26!
Games will begin at 9:00 a.m. and each game will last approximately 1-1/2 hours. A schedule of teams/games with start times will be provided to team captains prior to the day of the tournament. All teams will be divided up between the 2 cricket fields, will play each other and will be ranked based on points earned. There will be a championship game and runner up game on each field. It is anticipated that the Championship Games will start at approximately 5:00 p.m. Equipment for playing (balls, bats, wickets, etc.) will be provided for use by all teams. All you need to bring is your team!! Additional information regarding the tournament format and the match rules are provided here.
After the Championship Games, there will be an awards presentation and cricket celebration at Nine Band Brewery in Allen starting at 6:00 p.m. All participants will receive a coupon for free food and a beverage. Please be sure to attend the festivities!
