Welcome to the Bath and District Youth Cricket League

The Bath and District Youth Cricket League was formed in 1978, and provides cricket for 90 teams from 24 clubs playing in 9 divisions.

At Under-11's age, the league runs a premier division in which regular twenty20 cricket is played, and geographic divisions in which 8-a-side teams play 16 overs, with batsmen batting in pairs for four overs, wickets counting as -5 runs.

At Under-13's and Under-15's, all cricket is played to the twenty20 format. In Under-13's, the premier division contains the top sides, while the lower teams are split geographically. At Under-15's the split is a combination of playing strength and geography.

Under-9's cricket is also provided through Kwik cricket tournaments, run on a Sunday mornings at various clubs throughout the summer, with games played 8-a-side using a plastic bat and ball, and with the same rules as the lower under-11 divisions.

The league covers an area roughly bounded by Chippenham in the North-East, Warminster in the South-East, Midsummer Norton in the South-West, and the Eastern suburbs of Bristol in the North-West.

New clubs are always welcome to join; any club which is interested should contact the League Administrator, Jon Flagg, flagg *at* bdycl.org.uk.
