Sticky Wicket 2012 moves date to prevent London 2012 Olympics clash

The event industry’s charity cricket day Sticky Wicket is set to return to Regents Park on 21 June.
 
Event
organiser Mervyn Ramsay said the team had brought the date forward from
July to June to avoid clashes with the London 2012 Olympic Games. He
expected this year’s event to be the biggest to date and anticipated the
number of teams participating to rise from 12 to 16.
 
The sixth annual match day also coincides with the first day of Brand Events’ Taste of London in Regents Park.
 
The fifth annual Sticky Wicket raised £30,000 for the Lord’s Taverners charity through the charity matches, auction and raffle. Last year’s winning team was from Excel London. Further details about the day’s programme will be released soon.
 
“We will be challenging ourselves and trying to grow to grow the event again,” Ramsay said. “We’re looking forward to it.”
 
As well as its commitment to the Lord’s Taverners charity, this year’s Sticky Wicket will also support the new events for Namuwongo charity, launched this month to help improve living standards throughout the Ugandan village of Namuwongo over the next two years.
