Cork County Charity 6’s Tournament only days away

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Following on from last year’s hugely successful event, the cricket grounds at the Mardyke will be playing host to the annual Cork County Charity 6’s Tournament on Saturday. The nominated charity for this year’s event is the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and it is hoped to build the tournament into the cricket equivalent of the Heineken Kinsale Sevens in the coming years. Despite the poor weather last summer, the event drew teams from varying backgrounds to the Mardyke to compete for the 6-a-side title. Teams varied from a Munster rugby side to a team from Kilbrittain GAA Club who eventually went on to win the competition. This year’s event has drawn interest from around the country and also from as far afield as Australia and the UK. William John Bradley and Shay Livingstone from the Cork County Cricket Club committee have been the driving force behind the Charity 6’s Tournament and have sought to increase the profile of the event following the success of last year’s competition and have been encouraged by the interest shown from home and abroad.

The Charity 6’s Tournament is scheduled to take place on Saturday the 3rd July and the weekend will kick off with a BBQ for teams and supporters on Friday night at the Mardyke. The tournament will commence in earnest at 10:30 a.m. on the Saturday and will continue into the afternoon. As with last year’s event teams are encouraged to play in fancy dress/team kits and it is anticipated that a few ‘Eoin Morgan’ style cricket shots will be on show. Entry forms will be available on Saturday morning prior to the commencement of the tournament so don’t delay if you still wish to enter a side. There will be food and drinks available all day so all are welcome to attend even those who are not competing.

Pictures from last year’s event are available in the gallery section of the website.
