    BCC 6-a-side Tournament

    Every Bank Holiday Monday at the end of August, BCC hosts a 6 a side tournament. Games are played at the Memorial Ground and the Beaminster School pitch with 4 teams in each group playing each other once. The top 2 teams in the group play in a final at the Memorial Ground and the second placed teams compete for a shield.

    6-a-side Tournament Match Rules
    The Laws of Cricket will apply except:
    • Games are played between two teams of six players, and each game consists of a maximum of five six-ball overs bowled by each side.
    • Each member of the fielding side bowls one over, with the exception of the wicket-keeper.
    • Wides and no-balls count as two runs.
    • If five wickets fall before 5 overs are completed, the last remaining batter bats on with the fifth batter acting as a runner. He/she always takes strike. The innings is complete when the sixth wicket falls.
    • Batter’s retire not out on reaching 31 runs. The idea being to reach 36 runs by hitting 6 sixes. A retired batter can return to the crease after lower-order batter either retire or are out.
    • The tournament points system awards two points for each match won.
