Nelson Tapeball Cricket Club recently organised an indoor Tapeball cricket tournament at Nelson and Colne College.

Eight teams took part in this one-day tournament, which was a very big success.

Teams from all over Burnley and Pendle were entered, with an aim to increase this when the club hope to hold their national outdoor tapeball tournament this summer.

A significant number of spectators came to watch the cricket throughout the day, with local businesses – Chocstop Diner, NBC Property Agents and Papas Pizza – sponsored the tournament with trophies and prize money of £150 to the winners. The £100 runners-up prize was sponsored by Cllr Mohammed Aslam.
