The Baywide T20 championship kicks off this weekend with a standalone spot in the middle of the cricket season. A pre-season captains meeting advocated for acontinuous T20 season - instead of playing half the competition in the opening two weeks of the season and then completing the title race later in the season.
The first two Baywide T20 stanzas will be played at Western Bay venues on Saturday (14 December 2019), with an immediate return after the holiday break, on Saturday 11 January 2020. A break with tradition will see round five played on Wednesday 15 January, in an early evening time spot.
The weekend of the 18/19 January 2020, will bring the last two qualifying rounds and post-section action to Blake Park, with the final taking place on the Bay Oval on the Sunday evening.
Carrus Mount Maunganui, will have a three-peat of Baywide T20 titles in their sights,after winning the last two T20 Championships. Round one matches them up with arch-rivals Element IMF Cadets, with the Mount facing Bayleys Central Indians in the late afternoon round of play.
Bond & Co Tauranga Boys College, who won the first two T20 titles in the 2011/2012 and 2012/13 seasons, are at home at Nicholson Field for their first two rounds. Geyser City is their first-up opponents before they square of with Eve's Realty Greerton in round two.
Generation Homes Lake Taupo play Greerton and New World Te Puke meet Central Indians, to complete the round one action. Rounding out round two, are the match-ups between Cadets and Geyser City and Te Puke and Lake Taupo.
