We are delighted to invite you to our hotly anticipated “The Jonathan Lea Network Annual Stoolball Tournament”, in association with Haywards Heath Business Association and we look forward to welcoming new guests to the event.
We are playing in the beautiful grounds of Great Walstead School. Please join us on 3rd August 2023 at 5pm for an afternoon and evening of games, networking, food and drinks.
The wonderful team at Centre Catering are supplying mouthwatering burgers, (including all vegan and gluten free options) which will be freshly prepared by the chefs on site for us to feast on between play.
For those of you who are not aware of the game, Stoolball dates back to the 15th century and is unique to our lovely county of Sussex. A blend of cricket and rounders, it was traditionally played by milkmaids but also has romantic associations as references in medieval times refer to it being a courtship pastime rather than a competitive game!
Please can you indicate when booking your ticket, if you would like to play a game of stoolball or if you would simply like to join us as a spectator for the evening? This allows us to work out how many teams of players we will have.
We would be delighted if you can join us.
Admission: Free for HHBA members and Jonathan Lea guests – please book under the appropriate ticket category.
*This is a ticket only event and there will be limited spaces
