#ReturnToPlay: Marking The Return Of Outdoor Sport

Cricket returns with unprecedented interest in All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket

As cricketers across England and Wales get ready to #ReturnToPlay from today, Hampshire County Cricket Board can reveal unprecedented demand for the ECBs flagship junior programmes, Dynamos Cricket and All Stars Cricket.

Since registrations opened a week ago, 1300 children have signed up to the two programmes in Hampshire.

Both Dynamos and All Stars Cricket are designed to help kids develop new cricketing skills and begin a lifelong love for the game. Dynamos Cricket is for children aged 8-11 graduating from All Stars Cricket. The programme is also perfect for those who are totally new to the sport.

To find out more about Dynamos Cricket and to register your children to take part visit dynamoscricket.co.uk. Parents of kids aged 5-8 can sign up for All Stars Cricket at allstarscricket.co.uk.

It’s fantastic so many clubs in the county are running All Stars and Dynamos this year. Hampshire has over 90 centres all of which will play a crucial part in getting children physically active again and inspiring them to play the game. With All Stars sign ups exceeding 2019 levels, it’s shaping up to be a really busy and exciting summer of cricket!

Both programmes are aligned with the government’s commitment to exercise and the Chief Medical Officer’s guidance that children should aim for 60 minutes of physical activity a day. This comes as the latest unlocking on the government roadmap has allowed for the reopening of grassroots sport. From today, organised outdoor cricket and organised outdoor coaching can resume in line with Government guidance and safeguarding ratios.

It is brilliant news that so many children are already signed up for Dynamos and All Stars Cricket. They are fantastic ways to get involved and learn to love our game. I’m sure kids and adults around the country are incredibly excited to be back playing and we are all looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic summer of sport
