It’s T20 at the double

THE introduction of Sommers Cup cricket to the Coffs Coast last summer was so successful that two T20 competitions will be played in coming weeks.

Team grading for the 2015 Sommers T20 Cup will be held from 6.30pm at Club Coffs on West High this Friday with special guest Wayne Seabrook from NSW Cricket.

Players and family members attending have an opportunity to win tickets to the next two Sydney Sixers matches at the SCG.

Round one will be played on Saturday, with the finals under lights at Coffs Coast Sports and Leisure Park one week later, on January 17.

Local supplier Mustang Cricket is providing bat vouchers for the highest run scorer and wicket taker for the Under-20 division.

Then, for more social T20 cricketers who just want to have a hit and giggle with their mates during the week, the widest-reaching amateur cricket league in the world, Last Man Stands, is coming to the Coffs Coast.

Last Man Stands is a quick, exciting and rule-bending version of T20 played by time-strapped cricketers all over the world.

It brings together like-minded individuals from all walks of life, countries, religions, sex, and races, to enjoy this wonderful format of the grand old game.

The Coffs Coast League is a social family-friendly competition played for less than two hours on Thursday evenings and it doesn't matter if your ability is more suited to the backyard, or you really do fancy your chances at first class level (if only the selectors thought the same way as you do).

Any player or team can join Last Man Stands.
