Play like a pro: Your chance to play on a Test match ground

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Your chance to play like a pro.

Ever wondered what it’s like walking from the pavilion out to bat on one of the world’s most iconic cricket venues?

Fancy the chance to run across an immaculate golf-green outfield, take guard on a beautiful Test-standard strip or celebrate a wicket in an arena fit for thousands?

Thanks to ProPlay that dream could actually come true.

Get involved in one of ProPlay’s 2018 tournaments at The Kia Oval and you could be stroking boundaries or taking catches on a ground that’s hosted the great and the good of the game’s glorious past.

An ideal corporate or team bonding experience, or just as a treat for you and your cricket clubmates, there are currently spaces available for teams in two Kia Oval tournament days.

Key details

Price: £2,400 per team
Date: Friday June 29, 2018 OR Friday September 21, 2018
Team: 10-a-side (Maximum squad size 16 players)
Playing time: Minimum 3 T10 matches per team
Deposit: £1,000 to secure your team’s place

With eight teams taking part, the tournament will be held over a full day. Each team plays a minimum of three matches and the top two teams, once all league matches are completed, play a final to determine the tournament winners.

Each match is 10 overs a side, and with two wickets prepared on the ground, you spend as much time out there as possible. Held shortly after the ODI series with Australia, the first tournament provides the opportunity to play in the height of the season, while the second offers the unique experience of playing the final under floodlights.
