Launch of new walking cricket sessions in Dudley


A NEW Foot Cricket Center is being launched in Dudley by Worcestershire Cricket with funding from Sport England through the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund.

A slower version of the sport, foot cricket offers skill to players of all ages and abilities.

Elsa-Marie Evans, head of club and community development at Worcestershire Cricket, said: “This format offers an exciting way to stay fit and active for those who may not have played for a while, may have had injuries that stopped them playing or are completely new to the game.

“Whether you’re batting, bowling or out on the field, cricket is a great form of cardio exercise and helps improve hand-eye coordination and flexibility.

“We have had great success with our foot cricket centers in Worcestershire and it is hugely exciting to now be able to bring this activity to Dudley.”

Sessions will take place at Netherton Park, Greaves Road, Dudley on Tuesday afternoons, starting Tuesday June 7, from 1-2pm.

It is not necessary to book in advance to attend.

The first session is free followed by a fee of £3 per week. A free parking is available.

Each participant will be asked to complete a simple health questionnaire at the start of each session.
