Beach cricket bash

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

YOU don’t need to bat like Michael Clarke to be a le­gend in your own lunchtime at the Car­ni­vale beach cricket tour­na­ment next Satur­day.

There is still time to get a team to­gether for a clas­sic game of beach cricket with sep­a­rate di­vi­sions for the so­cial slog­gers and those who take their ten­nis ball on wil­low more se­ri­ously.

A fea­ture of the Car­ni­vale Beach Day on May 18, the beach cricket tour­na­ment will take place at the north­ern end of Four Mile Beach with teams of six play­ers in­vited to join in the fun.

The Iron Bar Car­ni­vale beach cricket com­pe­ti­tion will kick off at 8.30am, fun is guar­an­teed for ev­ery­one and the win­ning teams can cel­e­brate with com­pli­men­tary nib­bles and drinks at the Iron Bar.

Or­gan­iser Yvonne Carr said to get your team in now as there are limited spots avail­able.

‘‘We would love to see some more kids teams get in­volved this year,’’ she said.

‘‘It is a game of strat­egy and fun for the whole fam­ily.

‘‘My strat­egy for ex­am­ple, is to put off the bats­man with my amaz­ing pranc­ing bowl­ing tech­nique.

‘‘And the best part is that there is a $100 voucher from the the Iron Bar up for grabs.

‘‘Dress up in your cra­zi­est gear if you dare.’’

Teams must be reg­is­tered by May 16 so get in quick to avoid miss­ing out on the fun.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter a team con­tact Yvonne Carr on 0458 993 492 or or Liza Dowling on 0409 930 342 or by email­ing
