The Bramble Sandbar in the central Solent, halfway between Southampton and the Isle of Wight, is a sandbar that only appears once a year during the spring. As a result of low tide, a coast appears, opening for no more than one hour before the return of the flow of water. Whenever this happens, two local clubs arrange a friendly cricket match on the sandbar. This tradition has been going on for 50 years.
Dozens of boats from the local yacht club and numerous spectators gather at the Bramble sandbar to wait for the tide to go down. As soon as the shore is shown, the match begins and passions boil in earnest.
The hilly coastline and numerous puddles indicate that this is a more fun event than a serious cricket match. An elementary confirmation of this is the determination of the winner of the game of cricket. The winner here is pre-determined, as the two clubs alternate for the title every year, no matter what the balance of power is during the match. Thus, no one will be offended, and all participants in the cricket competition will receive a lot of pleasant impressions.
As mentioned above, the game lasts for about an hour until the water returns. After that, the players return to their boats and go contented to the Isle of Wight, where they are waiting for a celebratory dinner.
