Wiltshire Cricket

Wiltshire Cricket brings Disability Cricket to the School Games!

For the first time in 2016 Cricket was part of the Wiltshire and Swindon School Games. A festival for schools with children with disabilities were invited to take part in an exciting and engaging cricket competition, held on the outfield of the prestigious Marlborough College cricket pitches.

Students from Larkrise Trowbridge, Eldene Primary Swindon, St Peter’s Marlborough and Brimble Hill Swindon played each other in a simple version of the game of cricket that created equal opportunities for success. The game used a version of the 3 cone 3 drill game that is featured strongly in Primary School cricket.

All the schools had taken part in Wiltshire Cricket’s Disability offer in the past year, learning the skills to make them successful on the day. With help from young leaders from Lavington, Corsham and Sheldon school supporting and running the competition on the day the students were able to showcase their abilities in team working, ball striking and fielding.

Take a look at the video below to see some of the action from the day.

 
 

 

A massive thank you to the team at Wiltshire and Swindon Sport for inviting us to take part in this year’s school games. We hope we can be back next year!
