Wiltshire Cricket

British Weather Can't Dampen Sloggerz Spirits

Sloggerz Cricket camps returned for a fith year and had more camps running than ever before. The camps run as part of the Wiltshire Council Get Active scheme and form a big part of the county's drive to creating opportunities for young people to lead active lives.

 Our cricket camps this year took place at Chilmark, Malmesbury, Marlborough, Trowbridge and Amesbury. Each camp saw it's fair share of wet weather but it didn't stop the attendees having a fantastic time, learning new skills, playing new games and meeting new people.

 We had everyone from experienced district players to first time cricketers and it was great to see everybody joining in together to enjoy cricket as a group. Some highlights included - baseball cricket, criss-cross cricket, spin bowling, power hitting and of course everybody's favourite diamond cricket! We saw real improvement and growth not only in skills but in confidence and stature.

 A huge thanks to our host clubs for 2017, it was fantastic to showcase a range of different facilities on offer around the county and the difference cricket can make in the local community. Well done to all our coaches, Rob, Laura, Joe and Aled for keeping spirits high during the damp parts!
