Bermondsey Street in particular is a bustling home to some of London’s great restaurants and bars. We cannot wait to bring Sixes to the area and get the party started.”

LondonWorld went down to the new Sixes Social Cricket venue just before opening to see what the excitement is all about. A packed bar on Wednesday evening enjoyed piping hot pizza, sliders and tasted the wacky drinks menu.

With a little Dutch courage, we ventured into the cricket nets and impressed ourselves as we taught the automated bowling machine a lesson or two. Taking inspiration from the England national team's Bazball approach, the beginner bowler was hit for fours and sixes all over the park.

Getting a little to confident, we soon had the difficulty whacked up and were punished by some more testing spin balls, whose movement got the better of us as we stumbled back on our own wicket. Solace was found in more pizza before returning for a confidence-boosting beginner smash out.
