Through our aim to engage 1 million kids over the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, we’ve invited clubs across the country to become a Cricket World Cup Club and 'be part of the World's Greatest Cricket Celebration!' Nearly 3,000 clubs and communities across the country will be running a Family Day across 7 - 9 June 2019, engaging a new, young audience through the excitement of the Cricket World Cup.
How can you get involved?
With almost 3,000 clubs and communities putting on Family Day events across the weekend of 7 – 9 June, you are almost spoilt for choice in terms of what to do.
Simply put, all you need to do is reach out to your local clubs and find out who is putting on a Family Day, then turn up on the day and enjoy yourself!
If you’re unsure where your local clubs are, the ECB Club Finder tool should be a great place to start. Type in your postcode and a full list of your local clubs will be shown to you. If you get in touch with these local clubs, you’ll be able to find an event near you! You’ll also see #CWC19Clubs being used on social media, as well as a large amount of local promotion.
What can I expect?
Cricket World Cup Family Days will take many forms, but what you can expect is to be able to watch live cricket, alongside a host of family-based activities. These activities may include:
- Kids coaching and/or taster sessions
- Parent/child matches
- ‘Bring a Friend’ days at All Stars Centres
- Women's and Girls Soft Ball Cricket
- Bouncy castles, face painting, clowns etc.
- BBQs and Bake Offs
- Trivia nights and discos
- ‘Dads v Lads’ matches
- Under 25s vs Over 25s matches
The list goes on…
