Saturday 16th January 2016 saw the official launch of the Natwest U19 Club T20 Competition at the Dummer Cricket Centre.  2 representatives from 8 Serious Cricket partner clubs attended the Dummer Cricket Centre to test their T20 skills in a Superstars competition hosted by Sky Sports Matt Floyd.  Special guest and England Cricketer Jason Roy also joined in with the fun and games, showing off his talents to all the young cricketers. The competition consisted of 5 T20 themed challenges which covered; Hitting Sixes, Bowling at the Death, Fielding & Diving Catches. Teams were awarded points for their performance in each of the skill challenges with the top 2 sides battling it out for the Superstars title in a 2 over indoor match.

The #U19T20 competition is returning for it's third installment this Summer and by providing a T20 platform, these young cricketers can play fast, lively matches that are aimed at re-engaging this generation with their clubs.  Richard Morris, National Sales Manager of Serious Cricket said, "as the approved teamwear & equipment supplier of the competition, we were absolutely delighted to be able to host the competition's launch at our dedicated indoor cricket centre in Dummer, Basingstoke.
