Woody's Round-Up 30th September - 13th October 2019!!!

Woody's Round-Up 30th September -13th October 2019!! 

School Update

As part of the Lord Taverners we offer disability coaching to schools all around Derbyshire mainly during the winter months. This usually includes table cricket but there is also an opportunity to have a go at some different types of cricket skills, depending on what the schools would like.

Since the start of September we have already provided this programme for schools such as Swanwick, Alferton Park, Brackenfield, Chapel, Peak School, Brookfield and St Martins.

Table cricket is an adapted version of cricket which is usually played on a table tennis table or similar, there is a ramp for the bowler to use in order to deliver the ball, a small bat for the batters to hit the ball, and then some fielders that can be moved around to try and stop the ball from hitting the scoring zones. They can get 2, 4 or 6 runs by hitting the ball into the zones while trying to avoid the fielders.

Our aim is to get as many children with disabilities involved in cricket as we can and with table cricket this allows any child with a disability to be able to have a go and enjoy the sessions. For the schools that we provide these sessions to, they are able to enter our table cricket competitions in January where they get the chance to compete against other schools. This gives them the opportunity to play competitively as well as just for fun!

Cluster Club

The girls cluster club sessions have started on a Monday evening at the county ground. There are girls involved from 6 different clubs; Duffield CC, Ilkeston Rutland CC, Ockbrook & Borrowash CC, Denby CC, Spondon CC, and Ticknall CC. The girls have been lucky enough to have help from Derbyshire Women's players, Tasha Allen and Lauren Tuffrey, at some of the sessions so far. It has been good for them to draw on their knowledge while they are there!


Falcons Courses

The first lot of the Falcons courses started as well! Wednesday nights was the start of the first Junior Falcons, and Friday saw the start of the other Junior Falcons as well as the Mini Falcons course. These saw 80 children having fun and making use of the facilities at the county ground!

There are still a few spaces on our Emerging Falcons half term course. Sign up here: http://www.dcbcricket.com/holiday-programmes/holiday-courses
