Mini Super 8s

Mini Super 8s

Supported by BDC Partner


The BDC Mini Super 8s has been operating since 2001 and is an extremely successful annual programme for boys and girls in Year 4. It gives young children an opportunity to join one of our five local clubs and represent that club in a competitive softball environment. It has so often been the spur for those young cricketers to develop a lifelong passion for the game.

The tournament is open to both boys and girls and over the years it has been the key factor in developing so many players who want to then progress into hardball cricket.


This is softball cricket, the nationally recognised format of the game at this age. Players bat in pairs and face two overs each. Any wicket costs the team 5 runs (start on 200) and the batter who is out continues for their pair's allotted two overs. Every player must bowl at least one over, either overarm or underarm. The batting team receives 2 runs for every wide or no-ball, and in the final over of the innings any wide or no ball is rebowled. To see more detailed rules and our complete Spectator's Information guide, click here.

Players train with their clubs weekly in the summer term and then teams play each other as many times as posible by competing in several two-hour festivals spread through June to mid-July and hosted at the club grounds. Weekly there are a small number of individual prizes and at the final festival every player receives a medal and there are players of the tournament awards, all presented by a representative from our partners, Wise Insurance.
