Invitation to try VI Cricket

 

Visually Impaired and Blind men and women of all ages are being invited to try their hand at VI Cricket this coming Saturday at the Edgbaston Cricket Centre.

Whether or not you’ve played the game or know the rules, Warwickshire Cricket Club Visually Impaired is inviting keen cricketers to its introductory session between midday and 2pm this Saturday.

Andy Wyles, Cricket Development Manager at the Warwickshire Cricket Board, said: “Warwickshire Cricket Club Visually Impaired was set up to enable young children and adults to be able to participate at a sport that they love, and to date we’ve seen a great response from the individuals that have taken part.

“Five Warwickshire players have been named in England’s squad for the Visually Impaired t20 World Cup in India at the end of this month, which we’re very proud of. But we’re keen to get as many Visually Impaired and Blind people as possible to take part and join in our introductory session on Saturday.”

England’s squad for the Visually Impaired t20 World Cup is skippered by Luke Sugg, who is also Warwickshire VI captain. The England squad also includes Warwickshire players Dave and Andy Powers, Mo Khatri and Justin Hollingsworth who is the youngest member of the squad at just 15 years old.

The Warwickshire team plays all home games at Leamington Cricket Club. For further information, please contact Andy Wyles on andywyles@edgbaston.com or visit www.warwickshireccvi.co.uk.
