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.

Congratulations to the Runouts, ARCS Plate Winners 2010.
21st July 2010
Congratulations to the Empty Raincoats on their victory in the Cup Final for the umpteenth year.
Smiling Crocs gave them a very good, competitive game, but ultimately came up short when chasing a challenging 146 to win.
The game was played out in the usual ARCS style: competitive, but fair.
Congratulations also to Rajesh for his Man of the Match performance; a true all-round performance with bat (including attempted reverse sweeps), ball (a caught-and-bowled) and stand-in wicket-keeper.
Finally, thanks to the Umpires (Dave Maynard & Jim Pettifor) and Scorer (Richard Avis) for their services, and to the Greyhound for their post-match hospitality.
