If you thought the Ashes was the ultimate cricketing event this summer, think again: the Bath Legends are back.
On three consecutive weekends – starting next Friday – gumshields will be swapped for batting pads and energy drinks replaced with cups of tea as Club players past and present run out at the Bath Cricket Club to take on three local teams.
Over the past few seasons, the mighty Legends have proven themselves just as fearsome on the oval as the rugby pitch.
This summer, the crowds will be wowed by the cricketing prowess of some of the following players throughout the three-test series: Matt Banahan, Ross Batty, Andrew Beattie, Phil de Glanville, Henry Thomas, David Trick, Matt Perry and one of the Club's newest recruits, England Sevens star Jeff Williams.
The dates for the matches, which all take place at the Bath Cricket Club, are as follows:
Bath Legends v Bath Cricket Club, Friday 24th July (17:45)
Bath Legends v Lansdowne Cricket Club, Friday 31st July (17:45)
Bath Legends v Hinton Charterhouse, Thursday 6th August (17:45)
Tickets can be purchased on the night at Bath Cricket Club.
