About Bat and Trap

The game of Bat and Trap is an ancient relative of Cricket, still popular in Kent and an interesting game for schools looking for something new to try. 

It is a team game with eight players on each side.   The "trap" is a rectangular mechanical device that lies on the ground.   The batsmen knocks a lever in the trap that shoots a hard rubber ball upwards in front of the batsmen who then smashes it with the bat towards the other side of the pitch.   The objective is to make the ball pass between two white posts which are 21 yards away.  Normally, the ball bounces once or twice before doing this and is fielded by a member of the opposing side who stand in a line just behind and between the posts.   However, in the rare case where a fielder catches the ball without it having touched the ground, the batsman is "caught out".  A batsman who misses the ball or otherwise fails to bash it between the posts successfully is also out, this tragedy being termed "knocked out".

Once the a fielder has the ball in hand, the bowling part of the game proceeds.   The bowler has as a target the front part of the trap, which is a 5 inches square rectangular flap hinged at the bottom and standing vertically.  A bowler from the fielding side throws or rolls the ball down the pitch at the trap target which is called a "wicket" and the batsman must stand back and cannot obstruct the ball in any way.  If the wicket is knocked down, the batsman is "bowled out" and the next batsman steps up.  If the bowler misses, then the batsman has scored a run and carries on with the next strike.
