Swardeston’s overseas cricket coaches Jaden Hatwell and Richard Sims are running cricket fun days for 8-14-year-olds during the school summer holidays.

Taking place at Hilltops, the CEYMS sports ground at Norwich Road, Swardeston, the fun days are for boys and girls who enjoy cricket and want to further their skills in an enjoyable environment, said Jaden.

“We will be using cricket balls, but all protective equipment will be available for the children to use. The days will consist of warm-up games, fielding, net sessions, use of the bowling machine and various games,” said Jaden.
