Backyard Cricket (BYC) is a format developed by Cricketqube inspired by those endless games at your gardens and those quirky rules. BYC gives you an opportunity to take a nostalgic trip to your childhood while having fun.
The whole point of BYC is having fun. Therefore, we have developed some quirky rules. The full rules of BYC events can be read here.
A team can have five or six players the squad. Only five could bat or bowl and be on the field at any one time. However, you can make unlimited substitutions while fielding.
At the moment Cricketqube offers the players to choose a tournament and register as a team of five or six. You can do that here.
Don’t worry if you are not in a team. You can register as an individual player and select your playing level. We will put you in a compatible team. You can register yourself here.
Our events are completely hassle-free, and you don’t need to bring anything. From bats to balls, we’ll take care of everything leaving you to focus on having fun.
We use the softer cricket balls (not tennis balls!) which replicated the normal cricket all bounce. Therefore, you don’t need wear pads or helmets. We advise you to bring a abdominal pad though, just in case!
Our events are very inclusive. You can include whoever you want in your team. People of any gender can play together as BYC is a skill-based game rather than a power-based game. However, we expect the players to be in a reasonably good health as our events are competitive and we do not want to see anyone getting injured. If you are bringing in minors, you need to have the consent forms from the parents. It can be found here.
Our tournament formats are dynamic, and you will receive an email with the details at least 24 hours before the start of the event.
The players agree that they can be photographed and vidoegraphed during the event and consents this material could be used for marketing purposes and can be posted online.
