The main cricket season is usually from May to September.

How Gary Mortiz, a Metro Member got into Blind Cricket
Listen below to RNIB’s Connect Radio Roger Cole who has a brilliant chat with
Gary Moritz about his lifelong passion for cricket.
Cricket for blind and partially sighted people is played with a normal junior football with ball bearings inside to enable players to hear the ball. The game is similar to mainstream cricket. Teams consist of 4 blind/severely visually impaired players and 7 partially sighted players. Metro will consider subsidy requests for travel and subsistence, kit, venue hire etc..
Metro is one of the founder members of the National Domestic Blind Cricket League and also competes in the BBS Knockout Cup Competition. Metro has been very successful in both competitions, winning the BBS Knockout Cup on 11 occasions since 1990. Metro has two teams, Metro and Metro Devils (Metro’s second team), taking part in both league and cup competitions in the 2012 season.
