Sadly this prize does not include travel or accommodation, so you will need to be able to get to Claremont Cricket Club yourself …

Teams will have the opportunity to bid for cricket legends for their teams at an invite-only cocktail function the night before the tournament with all proceeds from the auction going to the Sporting Chance Development Foundation.

Live entertainment by GoodLuck, and a light afternoon jazz and will see the Mother City put her most fashionable foot forward to the dress theme “Lords & Ladies – Summer Vintage Style”. Think summer hats, dresses and a touch of elegance!

Over and above the player auction proceeds going to Sporting Chance, an organisation that facilitates some of the country’s biggest development sports programmes and offers bursaries to talented cricketers, Sporting Chance will also host a development cricket clinic on the day, giving the cricket Legends a chance to lend their skills to a group of less fortunate youngsters.
