Anyone for Kwik Cricket? The game designed for boys and girls from 5 years of age upwards will make an appearance on Saturday at this year's Autumn Show which is staged on October 4 & 5 at the South of England Centre.
It promises to be a whole heap of fun putting the emphasis on participation and sheer enjoyment.
In practice any number of youngsters can play from 2–32. All the equipment is made from high quality moulded plastic and although light enough for small hands, it is tough and hardwearing.
The project is supported by the England and Yorkshire player Darren Gough.
He said: "It's a brilliant way of introducing children to cricket in an exciting and enjoyable way. Only a few years ago I was actually coaching Kwik Cricket in primary schools in Barnsley where the teachers and children absolutely loved it."
At the Autumn Show the Kwik Cricket will take the form of a competition of the game and it is intended that in future years teams will compete in a larger regional team event.
The show – open from 9am to 5pm on both days – will provide a comprehensive insight into farming and countryside and feature numerous attractions for children of all ages.
