All Stars Cricket coming to Sway from May 12th 2018!
The England & Wales Cricket Board
(ECB) is now into its second year of its new 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 again be playing a full part in
delivering the scheme!
will be on Saturday mornings at Jubilee Field from 9.30-11am
from 12th 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!"
