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 eligibility rule.

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.

Cup & Plate Finals
The Cup & Plate Finals are now confirmed as follows; further details will be distributed to captains in advance of the matches.

Cup Final
Tues 7th July: Runouts vs Empty Raincoats

Plate Final
Weds 8th July: Caught Jesters vs Bouncers & Googlies

The reserve day for both finals in Thursday 9th July.

Both finals are at the "usual" Notcutts Ground (as the Ivry St pitch is not available for the finals this year), and the result is purely on runs scored (NOT points).

Having independent officials at the finals is a long standing ARCS tradition, is something that helps differentiate the finals from other games we play during the season - if you are able & willing to officiate at either final (and earn a FREE pint and meal afterwards), please contact Chris (

Empty Raincoats lose all bonus points for the match.

The full adjudication is available from the downloads page.

23rd September 2008

Belated congratulations to Bouncers & Googlies for their terrific win over Runouts Unlimited in the Plate Final. A closely fought match saw Runouts seemingly coasting to victory until the B&G bowlers pegged them back. Several fine performances were topped by Bouncers & Googlies' Man of the Match Akshay John.

9th July 2008

Congratulations to Empty Raincoats who won the 2008 Cup Final (again!) and commiserations to Fraud Squad on an evening when the rain held off long enough for ER to post a very competitve 173 and then restrict Fraud Squad to an oh-so-nearly-there 157, despite a Man-of-the-match winning blistering 20 from Fraud Squad Skipper Dave Allen. Another game played in typical ARCS spirit, but with a very competitive edge - have we ever had so much heckling of a bowler?! And then - for a change - it was beer and chili or veggie curry at the Greyhound. Who could ask for a better evening?
