Funday sponsored by Simon Baynes: Sunday 8th July


The annual Ovington CC Funday event, sponsored by Simon Baynes, will this year take place on Sunday 8th July on the Little Knavesmire.


Many thanks to Simon Baynes – Wholesale Fruit and Vegetables supplier from York – for his sponsorship of the Funday Event.

The Annual Funday event is one of the key dates in the Ovo calendar. It is where the whole club comes together in our six-a-side event which features both juniors, seniors, parents and other family, with a raffle, BBQ, Bar, tuck shop and more to keep everyone entertained throughout. The key details for this year are:

  • Date: Sunday 8th July
  • Location: The Little Knavesmire, York
  • Player Registration: 11:00am – 11:30am
  • Player Registration Cost: £1 for each player
  • Play commences: As soon as teams are picked.
  • Also includes: BBQ, Bar, Tuck shop, Raffle, Tombola and more

They’ll be two groups of teams for six-a-side matches with about eight teams in total, with teams picked evenly with a mixture of juniors, seniors and non-cricketers alike to get a good balance. A soft incrediball is used in matches, with relaxed rules in general. On average the cricket finishes at about 5pm.

If anyone wishes to donate a raffle and/or a tombola prize, it would be very much welcome.
