All Stars Cricket coming to Sway from May!
The England & Wales Cricket Board
(ECB) has launched a grassroots programme for five- to
eight-year-olds, with the aim to get 50,000 more youngsters
participating in the game this summer - and the great
news is that Sway Cricket Club will be playing a full part in
delivering the scheme!
will be on Saturday mornings at Jubilee Field from 9.30-11am
from 20th May.
"It's all about putting a bat and ball in the hands of more children at an earlier age," he said. "We want to make playing cricket a fun and enjoyable experience for children and give them a passion for the game to last a lifetime."
For Dave Marshall, Sway CC's Development Manager, participation in All Stars was a natural progression:
"Unlike many local clubs,
Sway has for quite a few years now been providing hugely popular
"kwik cricket" sessions for the youngest players - and this is
has been a key reason behind the success of our current U9s and
U11s teams. So participating in All Stars is a logical
progression for us and we are looking forward to reaching out to
the next generation of boys and girls!"
Leaflets will be going out to schools etc shortly, but you can beat the rush and secure your place now by clicking on the picture below!
