This weekend the London Youth Games hosts the first two qualifying rounds of the Boys Open Cricket Competition at Harrow Leisure Centre.
25 boys’ teams, across two days will have the chance to compete for eight qualifying places to the grand finals at Lords Cricket Ground on Sunday 3 March 2019.
The Bromley boys will be battling against all other teams to ensure they retain their winning spot. But, will any other borough be bold enough to challenge them?
We are very excited to announce that this year, for the first time, at the boys’ competition we have BATFAST, who will be providing fun and interactive cricket simulators to keep the players warm and prepared for their upcoming games. BATFAST’s mission is to get as many people to love cricket as much as they do. They work with professional cricket teams, governing bodies, schools, universities and we are very excited to have them down across the weekend.
The following weekend we welcome girls from 20 different boroughs to compete for eight qualifying places in the all-important Lords Final on Sunday 3 March 2019. Hammersmith and Fulham reigned victorious in the 2018 competition, but will they be able to retain their cool to keep top spot?
One of the most popular events of the London Youth Games calendar takes place this weekend – We cannot wait for the games to begin.
Thanks to Middlesex Cricket Club for their help and support in organising this hotly contested London Youth Games Open competition.
