BLK Top Gun 2016 Announcement!
BLK Top Gun is back for 2016 and this year, we’re bringing the competition to you!
The search is back on to find the fastest club bowler in Yorkshire and, in partnership with BLK Sport, plan to make this year’s competition even bigger, better and more accessible for cricketers of all ages and abilities in the county.
The number of indoor heats has been reduced in favour of giving clubs the opportunity to host a BLK Top Gun heat on their ground. We’d like as many participants as possible ranging from the junior section right up to the seniors who think they may have the pace to challenge for the title or simply want to find out exactly how fast they bowl.
Indoor heats will be held at the Yorkshire Cricket Centre on Sunday 6th March, 11am-12pm and Woodlands Cricket Club on Sunday 20th March from 1pm-2pm.

For the first time, there will be a competition run for different age groups. BLK Sport have kindly agreed to supply kit to finalists in the under 17, under 15 and under 13 age groups with the 4 fastest from each age bracket bowling on the Headingley pitch during the interval of a Yorkshire Viking’s match.
Last year, Elliot Richardson from Woodlands CC came through a tight final last summer, clocking a top speed of 81mph in front of a full house at Headingley during the interval of the England v Australia ODI in September.
The unique prize for the fastest bowler sees them become a BLK sponsored athlete for the 2017 season with a £500 BLK Sport voucher, win 14 sets of whites and training kit for their team and of course, the converted title of fastest club bowler in the county.
