Cricket clinics aim to inspire youngsters

Loughborough University is offering youngsters the opportunity to hone their cricket skills and maybe even set them on their path to becoming the next Monty Panesar.

The clinics will take place in the state-of-the-art ECB National Cricket Centre on campus. On offer to boys and girls aged 8-16, the eight week course will start on Sunday April 15. Sessions will take place between 5pm-7pm.

“These clinics are really an opportunity for kids to learn from some top quality coaches," said University community sports officer Ian Gaunt.

“The clinics are also coinciding with the World Cup in the West Indies so the kids can come along and ask the coaches how to apply some of the skills they may be learning from watching the games out there.”

Gaunt added that all levels of skill and ability will be catered for and the course will give children the opportunity to learn the basics of the game, improve or even perfect their batting, bowling or fielding techniques.

The course will cost £80 for all eight sessions.

Anyone requiring further information or to book a place for the cricket clinics should contact sports reception on 01509 226-250. Booking forms can also be downloaded off the internet at www.loughboroughsport.com.
