Dorset Dolphins V I Cricket Club
Dorset Dolphins VICC started up in September 2013 - They are a mixed gender team with a wide age range of players in their squad
They currently play in BCEW’s Southern Regional League.
The Dolphins have a great deal of support from family & friends of the players who contribute in many ways by driving, first aiding and making drinks at games and practices.
At the 2013 BCEW, BJMT Development Festival the club were commended for showing excellent team spirit.
They are a friendly and welcoming group and are always keen to accept new players regardless of past cricketing experience.
The rules are much the same as cricket -
A size three Mitre football is used in U.K Blind Cricket to help the partially sighted players to see it and it is filled with a quantity of ball bearings to allow the totally blind players to hear it.
Players wear armbands to denote their level of sightedness from low visual impairment to completely blind.
