Chiang Mai Sixes Team Entry Details
The Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes is a 'by-invitation only'
event. We are pleased to invite and welcome several new teams every year,
while preference is traditionally given to teams that have participated
in previous tournaments. Invitations are traditionally out in OCTOBER preceeding the Sixes in April of the next year.
The Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes Thailand, is generally
scheduled for the end of March through the first week in April, and is held at the Chiangmai
Gymkhana Club ground in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
New teams interested in taking part in the Chiang
Mai Sixes should contact World Teams Co-ordinator, Barry Radburn, as soon
as possible so that you may be added to the October invitation list. Barry can
be contacted on : firstname.lastname@example.org. Any Sixes's regulars who have changed e-mail
contact are also reminded to inform Barry of their new details.
The Chiang Mai Sixes is a not for profit event run by volunteers. It
is an amateur club cricketer's competition, in which teams are allowed
to play, in any one match, only 1 player who is deemed a current first
class professional or former international 'star' player. (Often
several 'star' players will attend the Sixes, and if not already
travelling with a team they are assigned to play with teams that request
a guest star.)
The event's guiding philosophy is 'making friends through the sport
of cricket', and to this end, the social side of the tournament is
treated with the same enthusiasm as the cricket.

Five tournament trophies are played for at Chiang Mai Sixes: Cup, Bromley Shield, Bowl,
Plate and Spoon. This accomodates a generally pretty high class of cricket
competing for the Sixes' Cup and Shield, to a good average standard at Bowl and Plate
level, and a 'social cricketer' standard in the Spoon competition.
The exact play off format depends on the final number of teams entered.
However, in the basic schedule teams are assigned to first round groups,
which play in round robin format to decide who goes forward to compete
for the Sixes's Cup, Shield, Bowl, or Plate in the next round. Spoon division teams
are pre-defined and play their own separate round-robin to decide finalists.
