Local cricket clubs Ashford Town, Tenterden and Mersham have been selected to be ‘All Stars’ cricket centres, offering five to eight-yearold boys and girls an introduction to the sport through an eight-week programme starting on Sunday, May 21. ‘All Stars’ cricket is a national initiative produced and coordinated by the ECB. Parents sign their children on to the programme, then select a nominated centre close to their home for the children to attend. Every child joining the scheme receives their own kit bag containing T-shirt, cap, bat, ball, and water bottle all contained in an All Stars back pack. The total cost of the programme is £40 per child. For more information and how to sign on, parents are invited to view the All Stars website: allstarscricket.co.uk.
