Getting involved in Cricket
CompeteDynamo Schools Competition Pack - Dynamos Schools provides a fantastic first competitive playing experience for children aged 8-11. Following on from years of success through Kwik Cricket, we have been working hard to ensure the playing experience for young people provides them with an exciting game that replicates club cricket, as well as connecting them to the elite level of the game via the new ECB competition, The Hundred. Dynamos is a countdown format with simple rules, limited equipment needed and a new digital app to help with scoring. Schools can use this in an inter or intra-school competition and the toolkit provided will provide you with all you need to get started. For more information on Dynamos Cricket please click here. You can also access more Dynamos content by registering here.
