*THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED**
A cricket tea is one of the highlights of our great game and there are lots of cricket clubs across Yorkshire who put on a fine spread in between innings.
To celebrate those who make, bake and brew, we are launching a competition to find the best cricket tea in Yorkshire.
It is open to all cricket clubs in the region and Cricket Yorkshire is delighted to welcome Yorkshire Tea as the sponsor.
The winning club will receive a whopping 2,500 tea bags to keep them enjoying a proper brew for many months to come. Plus, there’s Traditional Afternoon Tea at Betty’s for up to four people.

Yorkshire Tea is synonymous with cricket having sponsored the England cricket team, supported Chance to Shine’s National Cricket Week and is the brew of choice at many pavilions across the land. It’s even on the box!
They now work with Chance to Shine in the UK and Cricket Builds Hope in Rwanda supporting projects that get kids playing cricket, building skills both on and off the pitch.
Here in Yorkshire, it’s time to fire up the tea urn, dig out your blockbuster recipes and champion those who deserve recognition.
Yorkshire cricket teas are magnificent. I should know I’ve eaten hundreds of them since Cricket Yorkshire started in 2011!
From curries to cakes and pies to pastries, the region serves its cricketers, umpires, scorers and visitors a feast.
Who does the best cricket tea in your league? Who should win?
How does my cricket club enter?
It’s easy to get involved! Just fill out the form below – we’re looking for 250-500 words on our story of who makes the cricket teas and why they should win. Famous recipes? Long-standing volunteers? Let us know!
