What are some good tips to organise a cricket tournament more effectively?

Recommended Posts

  • Focus on the cricket and its quality as priority #1.   This means proper umpiring, clarity in rules and organization of the game, zero tolerance for drameybaazi 
  • Prioritize player facilities - team 'dugouts',  hydration, etc.  
  • Plan for and provide designated areas for watching the cricket.   You'd be surprised at how effective providing snacks and drinks at minimum profit i.e. passing on bulk discounts, but still making some profit, is, in terms of generating goodwill as well as a bit of revenue. 
  • If you have the means and budget - have a sound system wired up and provide some sort of "commentary", score updates, music etc.  This is tricky though, because done poorly it can really impact the event negatively.  
  • Do a bit of homework and preparation, so that the 'audience' knows a bit about the teams playing and the players involved - short bios etc.

Depends on the scale if it's more local event I guess engaging local merchants and locality schools is important. If it's a bigger scale event then one can look at viewing experience, opening some sections free for kids school children etc.

Having played many local club tournaments, I believe I'm eligible to answer this.


1. Good friendly umpires - This is where most organizers screw it up. A tournament's heath depends on how effective the umpiring is. Never give a chance to teams to find faults. Bad umpires result in loss of credibility.

2. Presence of organizers - Make sure there is at least one of the organizers present when matches are going on. Just don't leave it on random guys and go away. Teams need you when there is a controversy and effective organizers always are there for help.


Apart from this, provide quality balls and try to get in quality teams for the tournament for effective organizing. Hope this helps.
