Since opening in December 2022, Sixes Social Cricket has been a popular addition to Leicester’s activity scene. But DID YOU KNOW it’s about more than just the cricket?

Sixes launched into Leicester, bringing the city’s first interactive cricket nets with them. A fun alternative to bowling or crazy golf, Sixes gives you the chance to step into the net and test out those cricket skills. Plus, even if you don’t have any cricket skills you can set it to beginner mode and have plenty of fun.

Ideal for all ability levels, you can go for world class made, or start at the beginning. A great way to test out the mate who thinks he’s got the best cricket skills of the group.

Whilst many are now familiar with the Sixes nets, that isn’t all the venue has to offer.


As well as activities, Sixes is also a buzzing sports bar with Sky Sports and TNT across screen in the venue. Whether it’s the T20 cricket, the Premier League, Premiership Rugby, or the tennis, you can enjoy watching the game with a few drinks. With the venue being family friendly until 7pm, it’s also a great spot to watch the big game with the kids. With Euro 2024 just around the corner you can now book in for the big games with food & drink packages available. Book early to secure your table in front of the screen.

If you’re heading down to watch the T20 action, you can also make the most of their special promotion with 2 for 1 Rum Punch cocktails and £3.50 Coors Light whenever the games are on.
