Pendle Hill Properties offers free cricket training to over 120 school children

Following on from their generous cricket bat giveaway every Christmas, Pendle Hill Properties are encouraging local Year 2 primary school children to try the sport and learn new skills. Managing Director Andrew Turner is a lifelong cricket fan, and also a member, part time player and sponsor of Read Cricket Club.

There is a free Read Raiders session being hosted at Read Cricket Club on Friday 6th May, which is designed to provide more than just cricket. Read Raiders gives girls and boys the opportunity to take part in a fantastic range of fun activities and games. The emphasis is on having fun, being active, and making new friends, and no previous experience is needed. 

To sign up, just visit this eventbrite link.

The sessions provide children with the basic movement skills to begin a lifelong love of sport, and general physical activity. They also provide social skills, confidence and the ability to work as a team, complementing sports activity in schools.

Activities include:

  • Catch and throw a ball
  • Hit a moving ball
  • Bowl with a straight arm
  • Play a basic game of cricket
  • Work and communicate as a team
  • Have lots of fun with new friends

The lucky schools are Read St John’s, Sabden Primary, Sabden St Mary’s, Simonstone St Peter’s, and Altham St James.

The hospitality area is open to the public with full bar service and outdoor seating – it’s dog friendly and a great, safe environment to relax and enjoy the cricket while spectating. Read Cricket Club is a really welcoming place for young players, and new members are always encouraged.

Andrew Turner of Pendle Hill Properties said: “The weather has been great recently, and matches are back on in the Moorland Arena. It’s a good time to revisit the children we gave cricket bats to for Christmas. Read Raiders is such a great way to give the children confidence and social skills, and hopefully they’ll gain a life long love of cricket, just as I have!”
