International Day of the Older Persons
Today is International Day of the Older Persons and a day to highlight the success of our Walking Cricket sessions across the region.
Walking Cricket is an adaptation of the traditional game of cricket to suit individuals with less mobility and caters for different abilities.
Since the programme returned outdoors in August, a total of 22 participants have taken part.
Yorkshire Cricket Foundation Participation Manager, Kendal James commented, “It has been great to see everybody back and taking part in the sessions, all social distancing procedures have been adhered to and everybody was thrilled to be back playing!”.
Due to ECB guidelines Walking Cricket will not be transitioning inside, however we are will soon be releasing details on new indoor cricket formats. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for further updates.
