Three Cricket Wales Roadshow Events Announced


Cricket players and officials across Wales are invited to join their nearest cricket roadshow to get expert coaching to improve game management and tactical awareness and help clubs to win more matches as well as to discuss sport-wide improvements for the game.

The roadshows, hosted jointly by Glamorgan CCC and Cricket Wales, will be split into two sessions, firstly to provide hands-on coaching tips from Glamorgan first-team coaches as well as John Derrick, Cricket Wales Performance Manager. There will also be the opportunity for attendees to discuss views with the Peter Hybart, Cricket Wales Chief Executive and Hugh Morris, Glamorgan CCC Chief Executive about improvements to the game at grassroots level. Glamorgan players will also be attending to join in the Q&A session, with each roadshow starting from 6.30pm.

Road show dates and venues:

  • Cardiff – SWALEC Stadium - 17th March

  • Swansea – Llandarcy - 18th March

  • Colwyn Bay – Parc Eirias – 23rd March

Glamorgan’s Chief Executive and Director of Cricket Hugh Morris said, “Developing young talented cricketers will be essential for the future of the game in Wales. Glamorgan and Cricket Wales, who look after the recreational game in Wales, are working very to achieve mutually beneficial objectives. We're going to be visiting locations around Wales to explain how together we aim to improve the sport in Wales and how cricket players, officials, spectators and volunteers can help.

"The roadshows will also be different this year with a hands-on coaching session at each event, so we’re really keen for club players and particularly captains at clubs at any level to gain some insights from our professional coaches."

Peter Hybart, Cricket Wales Chief Executive added, “The roadshow events have been successful over the last two years and we hope we can spark discussion about how we can improve the game in Wales as well as helping clubs to retain their players and improve their game, to strengthen the sport for future years. We’re keen for cricket players and officials to attend each event as there will be insight and benefits for all.”
