Fancy your chances batting or bowling against Test cricketers?

Cricket fans will get the chance to play against the best in the business on Friday, July 12 when England stars Martin Bicknell, Mark Illot and Charlotte Edwards, skipper of the national women’s team, will take on all-comers at Tring.

The West Herts Charity Cricket Challenge is held in aid of two local youth counselling charities, Urban Access in Hemel Hempstead and Signpost in Watford.

Tournament teams are made up of six to eight players and the event is played on multiple pitches throughout the day.

The tournament, now in its third year, brings businesses together and raises vital cash for the two charities, which provide free and confidential counselling and support to vulnerable young people at risk of dropping out due to depression, abuse or family breakdown.

Cricket fans will be able to keep an eye on the Ashes Test on the clubhouse TV.

The number of teams is limited – for more details contact James Perris at
