Jobs to be delivered as new cricket concept comes to Leicester

Leicester is set to become just the fourth city in the UK to become home to the Sixes Social Cricket brand.

Sixes combines sports technology with a barm burgers, sharing plates and wood-fired pizzas. The venue, on Halford Street in the former 19 Gales unit, will open in mid-December.

Sixes’ cutting-edge technology bowls out soft cricket balls, with points scored depending on which targets you hit.

The new venture is being brought to Leicester by two local Leicester business partners, Neer Modha and Ravi Mashru.

They said “We had heard about Sixes Social Cricket and visited the London venue. As soon as we tried it we were hooked. It’s a fun concept, which brings together friends through sport and hospitality. We knew we wanted to bring the venue to Leicester and can’t wait to open our doors in December.”

The venue says it is currently recruiting for a number of roles.
