Notts join world record attempt
Featured News | 13th May 2009
Cricket fans will enjoy a feast both on and off the field during the Spring Bank Holiday as Notts combine their opening Twenty20 Cup fixture with a world record attempt.
The Outlaws face Durham Dynamos at Trent Bridge on May 25 in an exciting match-up, and Notts are also encouraging supporters to take part in an attempt by National Family Week to break a world record for the largest number of picnics taking place simultaneously around the country.
The picnic will begin at 1pm and people can bring their own food, although Notts will also be providing ‘lunch bags’ containing a sandwich, a bag of crisps, a piece of fruit and a carton of drink at a cost of £5.00, which can be ordered in advance and picked up on the day.
Notts Community Marketing Co-ordinator Alex Picker said: “The Twenty20 Cup always provides fans with some tasty action so this world record attempt fits in nicely.
“Twenty20 cricket is a great way to entertain the whole family, and complements the idea of National Family Week.
“People can sit anywhere on the ground apart from the members’ pavilion and will have the chance at 1.30pm to be part of an official photograph. Anybody who wishes to bring a teddy bear along will also be in with a chance of winning a prize for the best on the day.”
Other entertainment on the day will include free coaching for children, a crèche facility, face painting and bouncy castle, as well as a special appearance from ‘Robin Hood’.
Tickets for the 2.30pm start are general admission only and advance tickets cost £12.00 for adults, £7 for juniors and OAPs, with a family ticket for two adults and two children costing £31.
Seats on the day cost £15 for adults, £8 for juniors and OAPs, and family tickets available for £38.00.
To order your picnic from Notts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements by 1pm on Wednesday May 20. Tickets can be bought by calling the Trent Bridge Ticket Office on 0870 168 8888 or at www.nottsccc.co.uk.
Please note that glass bottles or containers are not allowed on the ground.
