Manchester‘s social cricket entertainment venue is kicking off the launch of the 2022 The Hundred tournament with an exciting new competition.

And you and your mates could bag a share of a £10,000 prize if you come out on top.

To celebrate the start of the tournament, Sixes – the world’s first immersive cricketing experience, where budding batters can show off their skills in the nets – has decided to set up an inclusive sporting competition that will see teams from all across the UK face-off against each other to see who can rack up the most runs nationwide.

Cricket fans who reckon they’ve got what it takes to clinch the win can head on down to Sixes Manchester in the Corn Exchange to take part in the competition before The Hundred returns once again.

Unfamiliar with The Hundred? Already proving to be big hit with families and young people during its first year in 2021, The Hundred is cricket’s newest one-day tournament that gives fans the chance to watch a mix of fast-paced world-class cricket, along with a wide range music and entertainment off the pitch – and it’s back for another season from next month.

The action-packed tournament features world-class men’s and women’s players from around the globe, and has helped reintroduce cricket and showcase its biggest stars to a new audience. 

The new competition will be running in Manchester and at all of Sixes’ other four venues in Fitzrovia, Fulham, White City, and Birmingham from Monday 25 July – Saturday 3 September.

But what exactly do you need to do to be in with a chance of win a cut of £10,000?

Well, the competition challenges teams of between four and nine to face 100 balls and score as many runs as possible, just like in the The Hundred, and this means that competitors will not only get to take on a task, but also get the chance to experience the thrill of facing a professional cricketer by standing at the opposite end of the crease to simulated versions of The Hundred’s most iconic bowlers, including Mady Villiers, Lauren Bell, Sophie Ecclestone, Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali, and Saqib Mahmood.

The eight top-scoring teams across the country will win a cool £500, a Sixes Burger Bat, and be invited to a grand final on Sunday 11 September at Sixes’ newest London venue, White City, where they will battle out in a knockout format.

One team will walk away with a whopping £5,000, and of course, a trophy to recognise and show-off their impressive win.
