Sunset Smash

Sunset Smash | Ellerslie’s new and improved version of Twilight Cricket

 

We are incredibly excited to now offer a Youth Competition aimed at high school kids that will run before our Senior evening cricket.

 

Senior Sunset Smash

Love cricket but can’t sacrifice a whole Saturday to play the beautiful game? Then Sunset Smash is perfect for you! This short 8-a-side format is the perfect opportunity to get the old willow out and smash a few over the boundary.

Running on Monday evenings at Michaels Ave either side of Christmas, it’s a great choice for those wanting to enjoy cricket without having to block out a whole day. Teams will play one game a week starting at 6:15pm that will last approximately an hour. So enter a business team or grab a bunch of your mates and join now!
