THE new NatWest U19 Club T20 will be coming to Chipping Sodbury Cricket Club this month.
The Ridings-based club is one of 20 teams across Gloucestershire to sign up to the event, run in association with Plumbase.
It features coloured clothing and the use of pink balls in Aussie-style Big Bash matches, with the focus on keeping teenagers involved with the sport.
As well as trying to win matches, clubs are also competing for so-called Blast Points, awarded by the away side for the best match-day experience.
The points are scored on a scale of zero to five, with the highest representing a true T20 Blast atmosphere judged to be fantastic and the lowest for a game deemed to be the same as a normal cricket match.
The Chipping Sodbury Slayers have been drawn in the South B group, with their first game away to the Bristol Buccaneers on July 16. They then meet the BWIP Warriors at the Ridings on Friday, July 31, with a 6.15pm start.
 The Slayers go on to host Keynsham Hawks on Friday, August 7, before taking on the Bedminster Bashers at the Clanage on August 14.
 Admittance to Sodbury’s home games is free, with players and officials hoping to attract family crowds to enjoy plenty of thrills and spills usually associated with the short form of the game. Winners of the four Gloucestershire groups will qualify for a finals day at the Bristol County Ground on Sunday, August 30.
  Preparations for Sodbury’s home games are now in full swing, with the team’s young management team aiming to secure five Blast Points from both of their two home games and promising to provide a memorable experience for players and spectators.
