Before the current cricket season started, eight volunteers undertook ECB coaching training to help support junior training, and later this summer another of our coaches will take their Level 2 Coaching qualification. This includes our first female coaches, and brings the number of qualified coaches and coach support workers within the club to 16.
This enhanced coached capability has enabled Haddenham Cricket Club to grow the junior section even further and this year we have two teams competing in each age group in the local league at U9 and U11.
For the first time we are fielding an U15 team (school years 9 & 10) and they started their season with a victory over Princes Risborough.
Junior members are also starting to make regular appearances in the senior sides at the weekend.
We are excited to be hosting our Junior Kwik Cricket Tournament again this year after a massive success last year. This will take place on Sunday 12th June and local teams including Dinton, Aston Rowant, Waddesdon and Bledlow have all entered teams. We are lucky to be supported at this event by both the Beer Festival Trust and Waitrose, who have picked our tournament as one of their ECB Club Open Days.
