Due to the cancellation of the February 4th fixtures we have had to reorganise the fixture list for the remainder of the season and also extend the season to April 8th.
As we have to accommodate variables such as cup rounds, university terms and other individual club nuances, there will have to be a reconstruction of the remaining fixtures - so please check carefully when these are updated. We have tried to keep as many of the original fixtures in tact, but this is not always possible.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the majority of the fixtures originally arranged for 4th February have had to be postponed. Details of when these matches will be played will be sent out as soon as possible.
Happy New Year from everyone at the South Hampshire Indoor Cricket League.
Merry Christmas from everyone at the South Hampshire Indoor Cricket League.
Due to the current setup of courts in the new leisure centre, the names of the courts have been changed from A and B to L and M to denote the left and middle court of the three courts in the new building. Hopefully this will remove any confusion that was seen last weekend over which court is which.
All cricket bags are to be stored in squash courts 1 and 2 throughout the evening and should not be left in the corridor or the temporary storage space that was used last week, which we have been informed is owned by Eastleigh College.
A reminder that a Tiflex ball will be used in all the upcoming cup matches as a trial to see if it is a suitable alternative to the Readers ball.
We have been informed at short notice that a routine power outage has been scheduled for 10pm this Sunday (3rd December). As a result, the 9:15 matches have been cancelled. These fixtures will be rearranged in due course.
We have been informed by Fleming Park that QR codes provided by the centre will be required for access through the new buildings turnstile system. Please read the e-mail sent by the secretary for more info.
An opening date of Tuesday 28th November 2017 has been announced for the new Fleming Park Leisure Centre, to be known as Places Leisure Eastleigh.
The league have been informed that our fixtures will be played in the new building from Sunday 3rd December. Please allow time to check out the new building before your matches so we do not incur any delays on match evenings.
The fixtures for the entirety of the 2017-18 season have been released. They can be found on the Fixtures, Competitions and Teams pages.
The 2017 AGM will be held at Solent University in room TS011 on Thursday 20th July. The agenda can be downloaded here.

Due to another scheduling issue with Fleming Park, some Easter Sunday fixtures have been lost. Attempts are being made to re-arrange for this Sunday (6th). Please check your e-mails and the website for more info.
This issue affects:
Langley Manor vs. Hythe & Dibden A
Broadstone vs. Hursley Park A
Peartree Wasps vs. Sway Seahawks
Southampton Community B vs. Friends
Oakmount vs. Bramshaw
Whalesmead Thistle vs. Hythe & Dibden B

Please let one of the committee know ASAP if you are able to raise a side and play your fixture this Sunday (6th).
If any cricket player or spectator is injured whilst playing or watching cricket at Fleming Park Leisure Centre, then the League and the Centre accept no liability. You play and watch at your own risk.
Please ensure that players wear the appropriate protective gear and that you take care whilst playing or watching
If both sides wish to have a scorer keep score during matches, please have the home team use the white and yellow copies of the scoresheet and the away team use the pink sheet.
Thanks to Compton & Chandlers Ford for the suggestion
Unfortunately the league has fallen foul of some double booking issues with Fleming Park where their system seems to be inadequate and we have lost another Sunday (31st January) and possibly some of 14th February.
It seems certain that we will have to play some games on days other than Sunday to be able to complete the league programme. These could be either Saturday Jan 16th or Wednesdays or Thursdays in Jan/Feb. Can you please let us know which of these would be preferable for your club. It is hoped at this stage that no team will be required to play more than one non-Sunday fixture (subject to any further cancellations).
Congratulations to all teams who made it through the recent rounds of the cup competitions. The draws for the next rounds have been made and will be put on the website over the coming days.
A reminder to all teams that you should arrive for your matches at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time and upon arrival, captains should conduct the toss, informing the duty team of the result and handing them a signed team sheet with full names of all participating players.
