The BIG Cricket Celebration at Cheltenham Racecourse

To celebrate the wonderful achievement of cricket returning across the county this summer we are organised a cricketing 1st – cricket at the famous Cheltenham Racecourse – and you and your club are invited to be a major part of this.
Seeing the return of so many smiling faces to our sport this spring and summer, has given us the drive to put on a one off event to celebrate all of those young children involved, in one place, all together – it’s going to be a blast and over 4,000 children are going to be invited! This will be managed in a Covid secure way as children will be organised by club or small manageable group, and we have more than enough space to support all.

For an event of such size we needed a venue that could cater for the masses and where better than the iconic Cheltenham Racecourse, overlooked by Cleeve Hill and the stunning Cotswold Hills landscape. Catering and seating will be available for parents, ice cream vans and sweetie trucks will be on site, plus hopefully much more.

This has very much caught the attention of others and as a consequence we will have members of the Hundred, the ECB, Sky and Gloucestershire Cricket present on the day, supporting, playing and helping out on what we hope will be a lasting memory for all youngsters, parents and coaches involved.

The date has been selected so that it follows the Hundred fixture between Welsh Fire and Birmingham Phoenix (Monday 9th), precedes the England v India 2nd Test (Thursday 12th) and is free of Gloucestershire men and women’s fixtures so the players can get involved. We also hope the written press and TV will support our special day, so content can be created for the 2nd Test.

The celebration will take place on Tuesday 10th August at Cheltenham Racecourse from 10:30-12:30. It is completely free and is aimed at girls and boys aged 5-11 years old.

We would love for you to be involved in our huge celebration and be playing cricket, having a fun session, on the Cheltenham Racecourse home straight and being part of this wonderful event.

If you would like to be involved then please click on button and sign up for free: register now – its free.

Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email, and we will be in touch again nearer the celebration with additional details, so please look out for this.

We truly hope that you would like to be involved and hope you will get behind this event and publicise it far and wide.

If you have friends who perhaps haven’t taken part in All Stars or Dynamos this summer, but are between the ages of 5 and 11, then please share this email and get them along to (simply putting down that they are part of your sons/daughters club).

We do hope this event excites you as much as it does us and we would love to have you and your club involved.

If you have any questions then please contact Chris Munden Cricket Operations Manager.
