Hacks vs Flaks announces teams for Summer Sports Day 2016

Dulwich Cricket Club will open its doors this Saturday (17 September) for the Hacks vs Flaks end of summer finale, when an expected 50 journalists and PRs lock horns on its cricket and rounders pitches.


A Hacks vs Flaks cricket match

Cricket starts at the earlier time of 11am this year, with the rounders action commencing at 1.30pm. The day will wrap up around 4.30pm, with prize giving and the customary raffle draw.

The Flaks have it all to do in the cricket after their dominant run was brought to an abrupt end last year, while the Hacks will look to edge out the Flaks once again in what is always a tightly fought rounders battle.

The Hacks vs Flaks event relies on support from an array of corporate partners and this year is no exception, with MS Amlin, CBRE, Finchatton, Rostrum, EY, FTI Consulting, KPMG, Emperor Design and Visimedia making the event possible.

The organisers would also like to give a special thanks to Shore Capital, the lead sponsor of this year’s event, which is raising money for Helen & Douglas House, a hospice dedicated to children and young adults.

Come down and watch the drama unfold over a beer, generously donated by SAB Miller. “The sun always shines on Hacks vs Flaks and it’s all for a brilliant cause”, says Edward Berry, MD, strategic comms at FTI Consulting and one of the organisers for the Hacks vs Flaks event.
