Nor me. It really is a locale sport, no chance of it really stretching out beyond its grassroots.

The ICU should see if they can get a club into every county that currently doesnt have one.

There is, it's called the Taveners league and a lot of teams have initially started out there before moving into the Junior leagues afterwards.

Plays with limited rules

20 overs per team
every player (bar wicketkeeper) bowls two overs each
you cannot be out first ball you face
you cannot be out LBW
when you score 20 you have to retire

It's good fun as a starting point, as for playing regularly myself I played a few seasons with North Wicklow and 2 years with Merrion but haven't played at all in about 4 years now.
