Bacton Parish Council in Norfolk says it has been misrepresented after the village cricket club said it had been evicted in a row over practising with a hard cricket ball.
In a statement on its website the council says it has not banned fielding and wicket keeping practice.
There is no restriction on using a cricket ball in matches or other types of cricket practice."
The statement continues: "The problems with the cricket club are of a completely different nature and have little to do with health and safety but everything to do with the failure of the club to co-operate with the parish council over a number of matters."
