J Bennett & Son sponsors Thame Cricket Club’s Open Day. 

There was an excellent attendance with plenty of local support turning out to watch 5 teams compete in the centre piece six-a-side tournament. Thame Town’s under 16 team won this, led by Christian Warwick who beat ‘Typically Village’ in a very close and exciting final. Christian also won the Red Ball-Sponsored champagne moment cricket stump for hitting 3 consecutive sixes in the final.


Along side the tournament they ran a BBQ, Rugby Tots sessions with Chinnor Rugby Club, Bouncy Castle and Free cricket net sessions for junior cricketers overseen by their ECB qualified coaches.


Although the skies were blue and weather beautiful, the wind was too gusty for us to fly the J Bennett & Son Hot Air Balloon on the day.  Jo, who won the balloon ride at the Summer Ball Auction, had the opportunity to chat with our pilot, Richard and the rest of the crew and her flight has been rescheduled for a later date.  Unfortunately the maximum wind speed for the balloon to take off is 10mph, Sunday’s speed was close to 28mph.  However, Richard kept the younger guests entertained with a questions and answer session and showing off the balloon and the burners.


Matt Swainn, (TTCC Vice Chairman) said “Our thanks go out to everyone that came along on Sunday, all the volunteers that helped to organise the event. We received plenty of interest from new junior cricketers, who came along to have a try in our nets. The informal and fun six-a-side format also reinvigorated a number of former players who are now hooked again having found the old magic is still there! ‘Flexible formats’ in Cricket are a great way to expand our reach for those who want to join in on a more frequent and less competitive basis.”


Mark Nicholl, Director at J Bennett & Son Insurance Brokers said, “As a resident of Thame it was a fantastic opportunity to sponsor such a lovely event. Encouraging young people to come along and try a sport and be part of the local community event benefits everyone.”
