Regrettably they haven't detailed the match rules.

Wonder how many other places would make a suitable venue? Plenty places big enough for a game of sorts (unlike that chamber by the looks of it) but a decent floor would always be the problem!

This was featured on Radio 4 "You and Yours" yesterday. Apparently no fours or sixes and catches valid from rebounds from the roof or walls.
