Ruddington Cricket Club is excited to take another stride forwards in the development of youth cricket in the village. For the 2017 season, the Club will be one of the first fully-accredited centres to offer ‘All Stars Cricket’ – a new initiative from the English and Wales Cricket Board. The idea is to give boys and girls aged 5 to 8 the opportunity to learn about and play cricket in a fun and safe environment.
All girls and boys are welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap to keep, so they can continue their love of cricket when they go home.
There will be 8 sessions of All Stars Cricket, which will run every Thursday from 6.15pm until 7.15pm. The first session will be on Thursday 25 May and before this, the club will be running other junior sessions on Friday nights to give a taster of what’s on offer. Please contact Nic Greaves on 07918 552 321 or visit www.ruddington.play-cricket.com for more details.
All Stars Cricket is the latest development in the ongoing transformation of Ruddington Cricket Club. 5 years ago, the club had just 2 adult teams and no youth offering at all. The club now has 4 successful adult teams and 5 junior teams. All Stars Cricket will add another dimension to the club, with the programme encouraging parents to get involved and have fun with their kids. Nic Greaves, who’s running All Stars Cricket said: ‘We can’t wait to see Elms Park packed with kids and their parents or guardians playing cricket and having fun!’
As well as All Stars Cricket, the club will be entering youth teams in the Kwik Cricket under 10, under 11, under 12 and under 14 leagues, and are on the lookout for new players. Training is held at Elms Park on Friday evenings in a fun and safe environment. If your child is interested, please contact Martin Brown on 07977 574 422 for more information.
