On Saturday, the 2nd of July, our cricket simulator we were part of a charity cricket match held by Lady Taverners and Centre Point at the Lord's Cricket ground (aka Home of Cricket). The All Star cricket match was being challenged for the Petterson trophy that was won by Centre Point the previous year.
Despite the heavy rains on Saturday night, the groundsmen made sure everything was in place for Sunday's Spalding Town Cricket Club open day. The open day was held to raise funds for the club. The day began with the under 9's and 11's having a training session followed by simultaneous cricket matches being played on the massive ground. With parents coming in numbers to support their young stars as well as enjoy the plenty of activities such as the bouncing castles and our Batfast cricket simulator definitely made their day worth a while.
Its always great to have a family fun day filled with activities to keep everyone entertained. The Krishna Avanti School in London hosted this event in order to raise funds for the school and we were so happy to be a part of their great cause. Having worked with them in the past during the FOAH summer fair showed they really loved our product.
This was our first ever visit to The Game Fair and we were left star struck. Definitely one of the biggest venues we have held our cricket simulator. The game fair boasted a record breaking crowd of approximately 107,000 people as they witnessed shooting, fishing and engaged in loads of shopping which was complimented by great weather throughout the weekend.
We're aiming to make our presence wherever possible. And this was a great opportunity for us test a different market altogether. This event was a 24 hour running marathon, that could be ran in teams or as individuals. It took place throughout the night with runners running through the woods in flood lights.
A festival like no other! We were so lucky to be a part of Bedford's biggest and best event. Bedford River Festival boasted a crowd of at least 300,000 people over the 2 days this year. More than 50,000 from the same event that happened two years ago. The great weather definitely complimented the fun activities that were on show for the festival.
The weather could not have been any better to be part of such a successful event hosted by the Friends of Avanti House committee. We were really happy to have helped the school raise funds for their new project and hope to be part of such events in the near future. The Batfast simulator was among the key attractions that kept the crowd entertained throughout the day.
The Ageas Bowl is home to Hampshire Cricket, and on 18th and 25th June 2016, they hosted the Natwest T20 Blast matches against Sussex Cricket and Gloucestershire Cricket respectively, which we were a part of. Despite rain causing both matches to be abandoned, the fans found other sorts of activities to keep them busy. That included the Batfast Cricket Simulator, Bouncing Castles, Animal Greetings and getting entertained with Reggae music by the legend Ivan J.
