Encouraging young cricketers

On Sunday next (25 June 2017) there will be an Edgbaston Foundation Community Open Day at Edgbaston cricket ground. Gates open at 10 am.

The day will be free and is intended to inspire local youngsters to get involved in cricket.

The Foundation aims to give away up to 500 cricket bats to local youngsters aged 12 and under. They will also be put in touch with the club nearest their home that is part of All Stars Cricket, a new entry level national cricket programme for children.

There will also be a chance to meet members of the Birmingham Bears cricket team and to watch them in an open training session.

Ravi Masih, Head of Community Engagement at Warwickshire CCC said, ‘Parents simply need to register for the Edgbaston Foundation Community Day and attend on the day to receive a bat, ball and regular cricketing opportunities for their child.’

Children under 16 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult to get into the ground.
