Under9 Festivals

Countywide U9 Festivals provide young players with a first chance to play against other clubs.

Building on the success of All Stars Cricket, there is now a comprehensive Under 9 Competition and Festival offer across Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire District Cricket Associations co-ordinate a calendar of club based festivals in their area.  With festivals spread across the summer months, cricket clubs can pick and choose those that they wish to attend.  U9 festivals allow young players at clubs who run All Stars Cricket, Dynamos Cricket and/or the U9s age group to play multiple games of cricket.  For many, this will be their first experience of playing cricket away from their own club and against other teams.  The pairs format ensures that all players have an equal chance to bat, bowl and participate in the game in a friendly and inclusive environment.

If you club is interested in hosting and/or playing in an U9 Festival this summer, please get in touch with your District Cricket Association.
