Under 11's & Under 9's Cricket Set to Begin
Throughout the winter, Shaw CC's very own Craig Thompson will be running training sessions for kids aged 7 - 11 years. These will be held indoors and are a great way of keeping the kids active over the cold, dark evenings in a safe and warm environment.
Indoor nets for 7 - 11 year-olds

Starting Tuesday 9th January
6pm - 7pm
£3 per child
All children welcome, new and existing players!
In addition, a reminder that the under 9's indoor cricket league starts on Friday 12th January, so the winter nets will be a perfect opportunity to get some practice in before the competition starts!

Prosecco Cricket A Huge Success
On Friday 8th September, Shaw CC hosted a festival of soft ball cricket in a bid to get more women involved in the sport. It was certainly a resounding success with many enthusiastically taking part and fulfilling the aim for women to "give cricket a go."
