Indoor cricket is a variant of and shares many basic concepts with
the outdoor games. It is usually played in an indoor multi sport hall
and we currently use the newly built sport hall at Mayfield School which
ha s a wooden sprung flooring.
Several versions of the game have been in existence since the late
1960s and at Redbridge we have added another vision which is fun-filled
and yet competetive. With 5 balls overs and 3 runs for a wide and "free
hit" for all no balls you can already see the difference.
protective mat on the floor and full length pitch we use a compressed
soft ball which means pads are not necessary. Batsman retire at 25 and
each bowler allow 3 overs max except for the premium batsman (35) and
premium bowler (4 ov) who must be nominated before the game.
Each team consist of six players with 13 overs (max) per side and each
game last approximately one hetic hour. It fast and furious with lots of
twist and turns but in the end one team usually wins.
Redbridge Indoor League currently has two divisions consisting of 6
teams per division and the season runs from early October to mid April.

We also run an outdoor league known as "Last Man Stands" which is
