Sticky Wicket 2012

Reed Exhibitions took home the cup after winning the sixth edition of the Sticky Wicket cricket competition in Regents Park.
 
Showers frequently stopped play but the title was secured in glorious sunshine. The event raised £35,000 for the Lord's Taverners, which will go towards giving disabled and underprivileged children a sporting chance.
 
Mash Media sponsored the players’ kits for the event, while Sticky Wicket also debuted a wooden spoon prize sponsored by The Enterprise Hotel.
 
Sixteen teams keenly battled in their groups, with four teams making it through to the semi finals: CloserStill Media, i2i Events, Earls Court and Olympia and Reed Exhibitions.
 
Reed Exhibitions and i2i Events made it through, with Reed Exhibitions then winning a closely fought final and lifting the Sticky Wicket Trophy.
 
During the day, Lord's Taverners president Chris Cowdrey handed over a specially adapted minibus in the name of Sticky Wicket to the Royal National College for the Blind in Hereford.
 
After the cricket was done, everyone retired to the Edinboro Castle pub in Camden where the day’s play was discussed over drinks.
