BABC Northern California Events Calendar
2017 Clash for the Ashes - Saturday, September 9th, 2017 - Tickets Now Available!
Mark your calendars and plan to join the BABC and AACC in collaboration with the Marin Cricket Club at the annual Clash for the Ashes Cricket Match. Watch some exciting cricket, enjoy an Aussie-Style BBQ lunch, Aussie beer and wine and fine British beverages including premium beer, Pimms and Gin and Tonic! This is a great day out for all the family with games for the kids at half time - set up your chairs and enjoy the sun in Larkspur.
Every year, spectators from around the Bay Area turn up to watch a veritable feast of cricketing drama. A game of intense competition and usually an excruciatingly close finish is guaranteed. This one day game is played with perhaps as much ardor and passion as the 'real' Ashes series between the test teams. This year, the Aussies will be battling it out to regain the trophy from the Brits who won it in 2016.
There's no better way to spend a summer's day than reclining behind the boundary rope in front of a backdrop of beautiful Mount Tamalpais and pretty marquees with their fluttering flags. Enjoy strawberries and cream and Pimms and Aussie BBQ fayre washed down by the best of British and Australian beers.
Bring friends and family, including the smallest children who will especially love the special kids' games staged at the lunch break.
This year it's anyone's guess who will win. So come on down to Piper Park on September 9th and cheer on your team! (Polite sledging allowed!)
