Testimonials from last years event
"What a fantastic experience it was to be involved in the inaugural '6ixes' tournament. Whilst the weather did everything it could to put a dampener on the day, the venue, format and planning was such that it ended up being a great event for all teams, enjoyed by all no matter what level of experience in cricket the participants had. Playing under floodlights was a particular highlight for us and definitely an incentive for teams to progress through the qualifying rounds".
"A great fun day was made all the worthwhile, given it was in aid of such a worthy charity".
Khalid Mahmood - Kennedys Law
"A fantastically organised event, which combined healthy competition with fun and sportsmanship"
"Playing the latter stage matches under floodlights gave all involved a fantastic experience. Walking out to bat with the music playing certainly gets the adrenalin pumping!"
Nick Taylor - Higgs and Sons
"The No5 Chambers Charity Cricket Tournament was one of our most memorable events last year. It was well organised, competitive and a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Particular highlights included watching the final played under floodlights and the bespoke team kits. I hope the event is run again soon."
Stephen Rome - Wragge and Co
