By Dominique Stafford in Cricket

MILL HILL VILLAGE Cricket Club are giving children the opportunity to try out the sport for the first time after signing up for the All Stars Cricket programme.

The club, based on the Ridgeway, Mill Hill, is one of 2,000 delivery centres across the country to be taking part in the scheme, which is the first nationwide entry-level participation programme for cricket for boys and girls aged between five and eight.

Parents can sign their kids up for the scheme via the following link: https://ecb.clubspark.uk/AllStars/BookCourse/a4c6c55c-4af8-4fb9-9165-082cc2f8380d or by visiting allstarscricket.co.uk and searching for Mill Hill Village Cricket Club / NW7 1AS post code.

After registering, the youngsters will have a cricket ‘back-pack’ delivered to their door, including a bat, ball and everything they need to try the game for the first time.

From June 2 they will then start an eight-week programme at the club, with the emphasis placed on learning how to play the game in a fun, safe and inclusive environment. Parents will be encouraged to take part at the club and be active with their kids.

“We are thrilled to be a part of All Stars Cricket,” said Phil Smith from Mill Village Cricket Club. “Junior cricket is the heartbeat and future of our club.

“This programme is all about getting kids off the sofa and out in the sunshine, making friends and having fun playing the game.

“We are hoping that at least 30 kids register and, along with the Middlesex County Cricket Board, we can help inspire the next generation of cricketers here at Mill Hill Village Cricket Club.”
