ResourceBank cricket challenge 2015

ResourceBank is delighted to announce a 10th consecutive year of sponsoring the annual ResourceBank Shropshire cricket challenge which is taking place on 9th July 2015 at the Wrekin College, Shropshire .

The cricket match is one of the best regarded networking events for the Shropshire business community and the hospitality tent has already completely sold out – all 700 seats already taken.   The challenge event pitches the Shropshire XI against a star-studded Invitational XI which last year featured a trio of Test players in Pakistan’s Abdul Razzaq, Indian opening batsman Wasim Jaffer and West Indies paceman Corey Collymore.

The match is a 40 over overs per side and is the showpiece of Shropshire’s hugely popular annual hospitality event.  While all the hospitality tickets have been sold, members of the public are also welcome to watch the match which starts at Wrekin College at 11am with admission free.

In addition to being an excellent networking event, the ResourceBank cricket challenge raises funds for the County Cricket Club as well as a nominated charity (this year’s chosen charity is The League of Friends of the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital).
