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.

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.
