Warwickshire Cricket Board Indoor School Leagues 2013
The two weeks leading up to Easter saw the Indoor Cricket Centre at Edgbaston turn into a hive of competitive cricketing activity as schools from all around the county took part in a series of Indoor Finals days.
In January more than 200 school teams at five age groups began playing a series of leagues games to earn the right to come along and play at the Edgbaston Finals Days. Leagues winners were invited along to the five Finals Days, which saw some great cricket played throughout.
The programme, which gives lie to the idea that cricket is not being played in state schools, is underpinned by funding from the Chance to Shine programme, which supports the delivery of cricket and cricketing opportunities to 60 secondary schools in the county over the next three years.
The games are played in a 6 a side, 10 over format which means games a quick and fast with most teams getting 4 games in during a finals day.
The programme in schools moves rapidly on into the summer term with schools competing in various county and city cups as well as an exciting new Chance to Compete 8-a-side format, which is designed to encourage new schools to join those already playing the game.
