Record crowd expected as Twenty20 returns…

Big hitting Australian David Warner, the Dynamos Twenty20 Cup overseas player, will make his first appearance at Riverside on Wednesday, plus there will be a fly-by courtesy of RAF Coningsby.  

A record Twenty20 Cup crowd is expected on Friday as tickets in the Don Robson Pavilion and all hospitality places have now sold out for Friday’s match against Lancashire Lightning.  With a big walk up expected on the night it’s advised that you book your tickets in advance to make your visit to Riverside as smooth as possible.

There is plenty of entertainment around the ground with fireworks as the match starts, great music, the Bowl Out Cup, pre match entertainment courtesy of Chester the Lion and hot tubs!

North Spas, a Hot Tub company based at Dobbies Garden World, Birtley and formed in early 2006 have kindly supplied the hot tubs for the two remaining matches at Riverside. Gone are the days where owning a Hot Tub could only be afforded by the rich and famous. With prices from as little as £3750 for a family sized tub, relaxation, luxury and wellbeing is available to everyone.  

North Spas offer a full installation service of their tubs which includes everything from survey through to electrical installation, base work, landscaping and crane lifts (where required), taking away the stresses and strains associated with choosing the right tub to buy and from the right dealer. 

With professional advice and after sales North Spas is literally your ‘One Stop Shop’ to buy that luxury tub you’ve always dreamed of and deserved.
