Yorkshire Tea National Cricket Week starts today

It’s back! National Cricket Week returns and it’s the sixth year of our partnership with Yorkshire Tea.

This week, we’ll be holding five flagship events in different parts of the country with some familiar faces coming out to support the charity and to inspire children to play and learn through cricket. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels and we’ll be letting you know all about what’s going on across the country.

As well as playing some cricket out on the fields, we’re encouraging schools to bring the sport into the classroom and turn their timetables over to cricket. We’ve got a special geography lesson looking at the tea-growing, cricket-playing nations of the world and our FREE Schools’ Portal has all the resources needed to get children inspired by cricket.

To celebrate the incredible difference that cricket can make to children, our amazing friends at Yorkshire Tea gave seven young cricketers an amazing experience, treating them like the Proper Stars that they are!

We’re looking forward to a wonderful week and it’s not too late for you to get involved as well!
