Nailsea Cricket Club has been thrilled at the response to the All Stars and Dynamos cricket programme over the last few weeks.
The All Stars attracted 48 youngsters aged five to eight, including 16 girls, and another 44 nine to 11-year-olds took part in the Dynamos programme, including seven girls.
Supported by the England and Wales Cricket Board, the Friday evening programmes are designed to introduce children to cricket and it’s different skills, combining traditional coaching techniques with a huge array of different games and the emphasis very much about participation and having fun.
The first tournament evening took place last Friday with Nailsea Dynamos taking on friends and neighbours Backwell Flax Bourton at The Grove and proved a huge success, with players, friends and family from both clubs enjoying a feast of cricket.
Nailsea travel for the reverse fixture this Friday and will continue the evening sessions throughout August, with new players always welcome.

"Nailsea will be looking to use this year’s success as a springboard to rejuvenate youth cricket in the town, as we look to add additional sides from next year onwards.
"Unfortunately, due to falling numbers in senior and youth participants in recent years, from this autumn, the second ground at The Grove will be used to accommodate junior football pitches. Despite this, the club intends to do all it can to reverse the trend for the benefit of future cricketers."
