Better are a sociable enterprise and we like to give back to the local community. Over summer in partnership with Middlesex County Cricket Club we ran sessions at Cumberland Market. The project was for everyone and some people had never played cricket before. The programme taught people how to bat, bowl and catch whilst they also improved their speed and agility. The 2 hours sessions were supported by a branded Middlesex CCC bus which drew attention, equipment suitable for all ages, goodie bags, and of course keen staff that were able to adapt the games so that everyone was included. The programme was advertised locally by community partners to ensure it was a popular summer of intergenerational cricket at Cumberland Market demonstrated by 130 throughputs from the 3 sessions with an age range from 4 to 80!
Following on from that success we are bringing cricket back to our centres and it will still be free. Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre is proud to host Community Cricket on the outdoor astro turf pitch every Friday for all ages from 5pm-6pm. Please see attached poster if you want to share the information.
