Cricket is one of the biggest sports in the UK, and many children across the country would like to pick up a bat and play this exciting game. However, many people may not know how or where they can play cricket.
The England Cricket Board has a fantastic section on their website called ‘Get into Cricket’ which provides a plethora of information on local cricket clubs in every region across the UK.
Contrary to popular belief, cricket is not just for boys. In fact, there has been a 55% increase in female participants. So, whether you have a little boy or girl, take a look at the English Cricket Board website to help them start playing the popular game.
The majority of cricket clubs across the country run junior or colts sections, as well as offering coaching and matches during the summer. You could also place your child in a cricket summer camp during future school holidays.
As well as helping your child to make a new hobby and some new friends, playing cricket will also ensure that they get plenty of exercise. Who knows what the future may hold for them, too. You never know, they could end up as the next Freddie Flintoff.
