Share this post:

Derbyshire County Cricket Club is set to welcome hundreds of local junior cricketers, as well as schoolchildren and community groups, to its annual Community Fixture tomorrow.

The Royal London Cup match against Hampshire at The Incora County Ground is an opportunity for the club to welcome new audiences to cricket and reward local community clubs for continuing to grow the game in Derbyshire.

Working with the Derbyshire Cricket Foundation, the club has distributed complimentary tickets to All Stars and Dynamos players, as well as local clubs and those taking part in the foundation’ Summer Holiday Camps.

It has also given tickets to Revive, which offers health and wellbeing and to people in Derwent, Chaddesden, Oakwood and Spondon, to distribute to families and service users.

Chief executive Ryan Duckett said: “Having a Community Fixture is an important part of our strategy to grow the game and we are grateful to the Derbyshire Cricket Foundation and Revive for their continued support.

“It was pleasing to see large crowds for the recent Vitality Blast competition, many of whom were joining us for the first time.

“This is another opportunity to introduce a wider audience to cricket and hopefully those joining us tomorrow will enjoy their experience and spark an interest in cricket.”
