What is the Wiltshire Wallop?
The Wiltshire Wallop began in 2013 and its aim is to become the premier 20 over competition in the county.
With clubs in Wiltshire playing in different league structures and pyramids when it comes to Saturday Cricket, the Wiltshire Wallop offers the opportunity for all clubs in the county to compete in the same competition and play for the honour of being the top 20 over team in the county! For more information on the competition please click here
Below is a loose format of the competition:
- 20 over matches
- Run during June, July and August
- Matches to be played on each week (you can decide which day)
- Groups of 3, 4 or 5 teams (this will be confirmed once number of teams are established)
- Each team playing each other twice
- Winner and runner up of each group progress to quarter finals then finals day
Wiltshire Wallop - 2018
Building on 2017
After each year of the Wallop we always seek feedback from clubs to ensure we can improve the competition year on year. Based on feedback following last year’s competition, we can confirm:
Play-Cricket – We will use play-cricket for the 2nd year in 2018, after running the competition through it for the first time in 2017
Pink balls and coloured clothing – This was not mandatory last year and nor will it be this year. However, the feedback from clubs that used it was positive and so we encourage clubs to try ideas such as coloured clothing and pink balls so as to make the competition as appealing and eye catching as possible
Plate finals day – This was a great way of involving all teams in the group stages and giving them something to play for if they lost early matches. This will continue in 2018
Competition and Discipline rules for finals day – As we always stress, the aim of the competition is to be as unbureaucratic as possible, and as such we will continue to encourage games to be played in that spirit, particularly in the group stages where there will not be centrally appointed umpires. However, based on feedback we will be introducing slightly more formalised competition rules and frameworks for the finals day stage at which point appointed umpires will be in place.
Format for this year
Cup Competition – top team from each group, plus best second place team. Finals Day at Corsham on 20th August.
Plate Competition – remaining 3 second place teams, plus best third place team. Finals Day TBC.
