Ian Sandbrook, Director of Participation at Cricket Scotland, said: “We believe All Stars Cricket could be a game-changer for the sport in Scotland.” “We think the programme will provide children and their parents with an outstanding first step into the sport and help create a generation of youngsters with a lifelong love of the game.” After All Stars there is Kwik Cricket? ‘Kwik cricket is a great way to introduce kids to this great game, improve their skills and keep them fit and healthy.’ – Stuart Broad – England Fast Bowler What is Kwik Cricket? Kwik Cricket is a simple game for all boys and girls from 8 years of age upwards with the emphasis still on participation and enjoyment. There are many variations of the game but in essence the ball is bowled and the batter tries to hit the ball and score runs. The team scoring the most runs wins. There is more to the game than can be explained here but if you ask any of the coaches or players I am sure they will be happy to explain fully!! The Kit Kwik Cricket equipment is made from high quality moulded plastic. It is light enough for small hands yet extremely tough and hard wearing. It has been designed as an alternative to traditional equipment to allow the game to be played safely on any flat surface either indoors or outdoors at any time of the year. We also use Cricket Factory equipment to keep the practices and drills different and fun! Kwik Cricket Skill Awards The Kwik Cricket Skill Awards Scheme is in 3 parts, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Awards test children’s catching, throwing, bowling and striking skills in a simple and easy to organise way.
