Summer Stories: Yorkshire Diamonds Roadshows
The Yorkshire Diamonds Roadshows have given young people, aged between 5 and 16, the opportunity to get involved in a new sport and try it out for free. The main aim of the Roadshows is to increase sports participation in girls across the county of Yorkshire.
The children get to try out their skills in the sports learning zone, were given freebies such as Diamonds bags, water bottles and face paints and then get to meet some of the Yorkshire Diamonds, getting some handy tips and hints along the way.
The roadshows took place across the whole summer, at various cricket clubs, including Scholes, East Harsley and Scarborough Cricket Club, with the Grand Finale taking place at York Cricket Club, just before the Diamonds took on Western Storm on Sunday 20th August. What’s more, all juniors who attended the Grand Finale got a free ticket to watch the game and were given the opportunity to meet Lauren Winfield as she was announced as the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation’s second ambassador.
