Kids inspired by Somerset game encouraged to try it for themselves

Bideford Cricket club are hoping to build on Somerset’s successful visit last week by hosting a series of summer holiday cricket camps.

The three-day courses will run for four weeks, and people can go to just one or two of the sessions rather than all three.

The camps, held at the Cricket Field in Westward Ho!, are open to any 7-12 year olds, whether Bideford members or not, and aim to teach basic techniques and improve youngsters’ batting, bowling and fielding.

Each session will be three hours long, from 9.30am-12.30, and will be run by ECB qualified coaches.

The club is hoping that a plethora of young talent will have been inspired by seeing Somerset on their doorstep and will fancy taking up cricket themselves.

Courses are £15 per week. For booking information, visit or call Head Coach Andy Davies on 01271 343904.
