Stratford is delighted to be taking part in the Birmingham Bears’ Selco Big Hit Challenge this May.

Swans Nest Lane will be hosting one of the two local heats on Thursday 21st May at 6pm.

Have you got what it takes to be a big hitter? Well the search is on at Edgbaston Stadium with a new regional challenge launched to find the biggest hitter of a cricket ball in club cricket.

Club cricketers are all invited to hit for six at a Selco Big Hit Challenge local heat at Attock CC – in Moseley – on Tuesday 5 May and Stratford-upon-Avon CC on Thursday 21 May. The top six from each heat will then compete on the big stage at Edgbaston, during the interval of a Birmingham Bears home game in the NatWest T20 Blast.

What’s more, the winner of the Selco Big Hit Challenge will get the chance to sit in the dugout with the Birmingham Bears squad for their final NatWest T20 Blast group game on 22 July against Northamptonshire Steelbacks. The winner will also receive a pair of tickets to NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day and a shirt signed by New Zealand Captain and T20 star Brendon McCullum, who joins the Bears this summer.
