Frequently asked questions
We're always happy to discuss your queries over email or on the phone. However, we've answered some of the most common questions we're asked here below.
Simply put, it's the bullseye of cricket shots! Six is the maximum amount of runs you can score from one shot, rewarding the most powerful and skilful batters in the world. When you enter the Batting Nets at one of our Clubhouses, the fastest way to climb the leaderboard is to smash as many sixes as you can!
You will be allocated 30 minutes for 2-3 guests, 45 minutes for 4-5 guests, 60 minutes for 6-9 guests and 90 minutes for 10-15 guests.
We'd always recommend booking. You can certainly choose to walk-in and we will do our best to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee there will be availability at the time you arrive.
We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before your slot, so we can get you set up in the nets and batting on time. Our bar and restaurant is open should you wish to join us for some refreshments in advance. You can book here.
You can indeed! We welcome those who'd like to bring their own cricket bat. We have a range of sizes and weights available to use, but if you feel more comfortable using your own bat, then feel free to bring it to Sixes.
The Sixes experience is best enjoyed with a group of people. We stipulate a minimum of 2 players per session to get as many people batting as possible and ensure the atmosphere and energy in the venue.
Our opening times can be viewed here.

Kids Birthday Parties
Batting net sessions are allocated based on group size
2-3 people – 1 net, 30 min | 10-15 people – 1 net, 90 min
4-5 people – 1 net, 45 min | 16-20 people – 2 nets, 60 min

Players will be registered into a net, then contenders take turns to test their batting skills against a series of balls, bowled by a virtual bowler. One player at a time, batting 6 or 5 balls in one turn. The game is very dynamic with each turn taking roughly 60-90 seconds. The aim of the game is to score as high a score as possible by striking the numbered targets around the nets. Each net comes with an adjoining table where parents can cheer as they watch scores appear on the overall leaderboard, whilst having a drink or two (soft or alcoholic).
You can book a table before or after the activity to have lunch - the space is yours for 90 minutes.
Sadly we do not offer birthday cakes but you're very welcome to bring your own as well as subtle decorations to mark the occasion.
(Just no confetti, please!)
Groups of up to 15 are welcome to order on the day.
Larger groups we would kindly request food choices no later than 7 days in advance to ensure smooth service.
We ask for at least 1 adult per 10 children to be present.
Each net comes with an adjoining table where parents can cheer as they watch scores appear on the overall leaderboard, whilst having a drink or two or a bite.

Unfortunately, Sixes tends to get super busy so unfortunately we are unable to offer a dedicated member of the team to help with the children.
There will be a member of the team present for check-in and food service but we ask for a minimum of 1 adult per 10 children.
We recommend Sixes game for children from 5 years old and up. Younger siblings and party guests are still very welcome and can cheer everybody on from the side of the net.
