Fast and furious cricket matches. International cricketing stars. An unbeatable party atmosphere. T20 cricket at the Kia Oval really is a smashing way to enjoy cricket with friends and family this summer.

What's T20 when it's at home? Let's just say it's the hipper, rebellious sibling of the cricket test match. Each team is given just a single innings, meaning high-tempo cricket with all to play for (and a touch of showboating, no doubt) — plus you go home knowing who's won!

This summer, the Kia Oval hosts seven T20 matches, in which home team Surrey Cricket Club battle it out against Glamorgan (27 May), Gloucestershire (31 May), Hampshire (2 June), Sussex (8 June), Middlesex (17 June), Somerset (21 June) and Kent (1 July).

Each T20 match is played in the evening — ideal for post-work/school entertainment in the sun. As well as world-class sport in an iconic London venue and an inimitable party vibe (oh hello, pyrotechnics and t shirt cannons), there are interactive activities for fans of all ages — plus loads of street food and refreshments available to buy on site.

What a perfect way for anyone and everyone to spend a balmy summer evening!

Bringing the family? Don't miss XBOX Family Zone, hosting interactive games, player autograph signings and more. The kids will love it (and let's face it, so will you). The Jubilee bank holiday fixture against Hampshire (2 June), meanwhile, is a Family Festival of Cricket — with extra special events planned.

Oh and by the way, if you're going as a family, know that under 16s go to all home matches for just £1 (!).

Getting to The Kia Oval couldn't be simpler; centrally located, it's easy to reach on the Northern line (in fact the tube station is named after it!) and by bus.
