Welcome to ARCS
What is ARCS?
ARCS is the Adastral Recreational Cricket Society.
Where is it?
ARCS is centred on Adastral Park, just outside Ipswich, and
aims to provide cricket, primarily of a fun kind, for those
based at the Park (and also various BT sites in the area) who
do not play regularly.
Who can play?
For guidance on who can play please see the
This web site
This web site is still a work in progress so do not be surprised if something doesn't behave quite
as you would expect.
If you spot any bugs or inaccuracies, or can think of any essential improvements let me know.

Note that the New August Rule kicks in on Mon 3rd Aug 2015, with all 2015 matches from that date being 12 (TWELVE) x 8 ball overs
THE AUGUST RULE: This rule was determined by the 2014 season AGM and is in addition to the START OF THE MATCH rule.
Any league match played from the first Monday in August (August 3rd in 2015) will be reduced to 12 8-ball overs per side.
Each bowler can bowl no more than two overs in the first ten overs of the innings. Each bowler can bowl a maximum of 3 overs in the innings.
Point calculations are the same as for any 15-over format match.
