An alternative Friday night out.. at the Cricket!

I love a good night out in town, dancing with cocktails as much as anyone but it’s nice to have a change every now and again – don’t you think?

Durham CCC is somewhere I’ve drove past lots of times but never actually ventured in! Though I don’t mind watching cricket… I’ve always been more of a football or tennis kind of a girl myself but a few months back an email asking if I’d like to attend landed in my inbox and I thought why not?!

So the other Friday, myself and my friend Debbie grabbed our warm coats and headed for Durham’s first ever nighttime match under the floodlights. We grabbed two glasses of Pimms from the bar and made ourselves comfy outside and tried to figure out the rules. The atmosphere was really relaxed and much less intense than football matches but still just as fun.

It was a successful Derby night for Durham who won against Yorkshire by six runs! Tipsy and tired, J had kindly offered to pick us up and take us home so after a short hunt in the car park for him, we were on our way.

If you fancy something a little different for a Friday night out then I’d definitely recommend giving the T20 matches a go. They’re much shorter than your usual cricket match and there’s lots of other things going on too to keep you entertained! Thanks very much for having us Durham CCC!

Please note Durham CCC did provide me with the two complimentary tickets for the purpose of review. Although this post is sponsored the above ramblings are my 100% honest opinion.
