The Lord Taverners - Derbyshire Table Cricket Competition 2018

Lord Tavs Table Cricket

Last month saw our 2nd annual Table Cricket competition, this year we were able to grow our competition to three table cricket competitions over three days. This was due to our significant increase in participants wanting to play the game. We had a brilliant turn out over the three days including 13 teams and 85 participants.

Since September 2017 the DCB’s Cricket Development Coaches have been delivering table cricket sessions to SEN schools all over Derbyshire with the help from The Lord’s Taverners. Children aged 7 – 16 have taken part in many sessions over the last few months to learn about table cricket and improve their skills. The sessions were enjoyed by both teachers and students which allowed us to put on such a successful three days of competition.

SEN Table Cricket Finals

Our first competition was hosted by Ashgate Croft. Four teams played, Swanwick Sports College, Chapel High School and two from Ashgate Croft. All games were high scoring with one of the Ashgate Croft teams coming out on top overall. The final game of the league format was Chapel High who were in 2nd and Ashgate Croft in 1st in a winner takes all battle. Chapel batted first and scored 251 losing 3 wickets in the process, then Ashgate Croft batted second and scored 277 only losing one wicket.

The second competition was hosted by The Royal School for the Deaf Derby. Six teams were involved in the second of the week with four teams from RSDD, Holbrook School for Autism and St Martins. RSDD’s blue team were the eventual winners on the day, they triumphed over RSDD’s green team with the biggest score of the week of 308. The captain of the green team taking an over for a massive 32 runs.

Our final competition of the week was at Stanton Vale School. Bennerley Fields School, Alfreton Park and Stanton Vale were the final three teams to take part in the competition. All games were tight and played within 10 runs, Stanton Vale took the competition as they went on unbeaten.

We were delighted to be joined by Billy Godleman, Derbyshire CCC's first team captain at The Royal School for the Deaf. Billy hadn’t previously experienced table cricket and it was great to have him involved.

We would like to say a huge thanks to our three great hosts, Ashgate Croft, Royal School for the Deaf Derby and Stanton Vale and the Lord’s Taverners for making it possible. We are already looking forward to our 2019 competitions.
