Showcase Club Open Days
In partnership with the ECB, we will be supporting over 1000 cricket clubs to host special open days so that anyone can pad-up, grab a bat or ball and play the innings of their life.
Five clubs have been specially selected to host a Showcase Club Open Day that will see players running special masterclasses where you can watch, learn and play in the Waitrose Batting cage with some of the biggest names in English cricket.
