Package options

Our day is based on a group, competing in a series of 6 a-side
matches – each team will be joined by a ‘celebrity’
Lashings player, so in effect you will need a minimum of 30 playing
guests, although you are obviously welcome to invite non
participating guests for the hospitality elements of the day and to
enjoy all the action. Throughout the day the teams will battle it
out on a mini league basis, until ultimately we reach a Grand Final
to decide the overall winners of this corporate challenge.

Your day will include a buffet lunch and full afternoon tea as
well as the chance to hear from some of the celebrities as to their
past exploits and views on the current state of cricket.

You will be able to enhance your day through a number of
exciting opportunities, such as professional match commentator and
p.a. system, customised Lashings cricket shirts and caps, venue
selection and much more.
