Recreational Cricket on the horizon?
With the recent announcement that one to one practicing and coaching is now permitted, the Government gave the green light for elite sport to resume from 1st June. This is an exciting development for all sport loving fans and provides a glimpse of light at the end of a long tunnel for the recreational game. An ECB statement read: "We are extremely heartened by Saturday's announcement from the Secretary of State, which will support the return of professional, domestic cricket behind closed doors, and provides a meaningful next step for recreational players to begin playing at their clubs again.
"Over the coming week, we will seek to understand the specific guidance from Government's medical teams so that we can provide support for cricket clubs who will be eager to see their communities safely playing in small groups.
"We extend our thanks to all those in Government who have worked hard to support the return of sport and we look forward to seeing players from across the game start returning to the field."
This is a positive step forward in the process of reaching some normality across the sporting spectrum. However, medical guidance and social distancing measure will need to be adhered to for this to become a reality.
We hope to be able to resume small group and Club coaching before too long but in the meantime, why not try one to one coaching? One to one sessions are a great choice to improve your all round performance on a individual basis with one of our coaches, whether you are a Junior or Senior player. We can work on all areas including; batting, bowling, fielding and wicket keeping. We also focus on the technical, tactical, physical and mental sides of the game.
