All Stars Cricket
All Stars Cricket is an activity-packed children’s cricket programme for boys and girls aged five to eight. Through eight weeks they will learn lots – as well as make new friends – in a safe and inclusive environment.
The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport, teaching them new skills, helping them make new friends and have a great time doing so.
All Stars Cricket is a national programme, which runs in local cricket clubs. The 2022 programme will run throughout May, June, July and August in 63 centres across our county.
Limited FREE Programmes Available
A number of free courses (normally £40) are available to book in late summer to allow more opportunities for boys and girls to be involved.
