Do you need to wear something nice at the cricket? Absolutely not! Get a group of your mates together & impress with your best banana costumes, your favourite WWE wrestlers, or maybe give Baywatch a run for their money! Fancy dress is encouraged at T20 matches in Canterbury.


G is for… Good vibes

Cricket is for everyone, and T20 cricket is all about enjoying yourself watching your Kent Spitfires!


H is for… Howzaaaat?!

Has the batter hit the ball to the fielder? Have they not hit it and it’s collided into their pads? Join our players by shouting your best “HOWZAAAAT?!” to the umpires to see if we can convince them to give Kent a wicket!

Will you win the big prize in front of a packed Spitfire Ground during the change of innings??

Watch out for the ball heading into the crowd! Batters won’t be hanging around to get as many runs as possible.


P is for… Pumping tunes

Before the match, during breaks, and before each overs – classic songs to get the party started will be playing around the ground!


Q is for… Quick singles

Forget shouts of “no run!” or “not now!” – every ball matters in T20 cricket!
