Cricket Leinster is running this workshop on Monday 10th May (7.00pm) for all those interested in finding out more on how to start your own Cricket4All section in your club or in your club's local community.
Cricket4All is a combination of Table Cricket and cricket skills that are suitable for kids and adults with additional needs to be able to take part in the game we all love. The sessions are adapted for the needs of the participants.
Table Cricket is played on a table tennis table, or tables put together to form a similar size surface. For example, school tables are perfect. You play cricket on the table with a boundary clipped onto the sides, slide-able fielders around the boundary, a mini bat and mini ball which gets pushed down a ramp.
How does it help people with disabilities
Alongside the enjoyment of playing the game and competing, table cricket has been shown to develop teamwork and social skills among players. It also helps coordination, fine motor skills and cognitive skills.
The game is played by young people with both learning and physical disabilities. It enables young people to understand tactics, draw the best out of team players and to build a social life.
For the young volunteers involved in coaching and umpiring, table cricket helps to develop self-confidence, leadership skills and enhances their future employment prospects.
When: Monday 10th May, 07:00pm start.
