Cricket World Cup Family Day

Clubs across England and Wales to host Cricket World Cup Family Days in June!

Cricket clubs and communities across England and Wales are set to join in the fun of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup thanks to the Cricket World Cup Family Days between 7-9 June.

On the same weekend that England face Bangladesh and India play Australia, clubs will be opening their doors to welcome local players, families and volunteers as part of the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) aim to engage one million kids over the Men’s Cricket World Cup.

These family days will work to help connect clubs and local communities and engage future players and fans, getting kids involved in the game and to help clubs showcase themselves.

Activities will include kids coaching and taster sessions for everyone, women's and girls’ soft ball cricket, and some clubs will be showing World Cup matches live.

Clubs have also had the chance to apply for a grant of up to £1,000. The fund is aimed at helping clubs digitise their clubhouses through the installation of new broadband and Wi-Fi or to upgrade their catering facilities.

Leigh Cricket Club in Lancashire are one of the thousands of clubs taking part. They will be celebrating in style with a match against a special PCA Masters team featuring a host of former England players.

As part of the initiative, clubs are nominating a ‘Champion’; one member from their club, to coordinate the activities taking place at the events, with prizes on offer for the champions.

Get in touch with your local club to find out more about what they have planned. To find your local cricket club click here.
