The big idea for Cricket tots
Although we only launched Cricket tots in early 2016, the idea for the classes came about many years beforehand.
Steve Fitzgerald is an Aussie cricket player who wanted to share his love of the sport with his young son.
He couldn’t find any classes for him, so he taught him himself – and the rest, as they say, is history.
We’re proud to have achieved Gold Accreditation status from the Children’s Activities Association (CAA).
The CAA is an industry-led, community interest company which aims to help all children’s activity providers raise the standards of practice and give more families access to excellent activities.
Cricket tots’ partners
We’re delighted to be partnering with world-renowned cricket brand, Gray-Nicolls.
With a long and rich history in the sport, Gray-Nicolls have provided cricketers around the world with kit and their favourite bats since 1855.
What’s more, they’re still a family-owned business and run by 5th generation Gray family members.
We also share the same ethos as ukactive, an organisation which champions innovative campaigns, research and insights.
With a vision to get more people, more active, more often, we’re thrilled to be in partnership with them.
We’re so excited to have Katie Wolfe as an ambassador for Cricket tots!
She may still be in her teens, but Katie has already achieved great things in her career. Her passion for getting more children into grass root sports knows no bounds, which is one of the reasons she was so thrilled to join us.
“I am extremely excited to become an ambassador for Cricket tots,” Katie said, “and to be part of a very experienced and professional team. The classes are an amazing opportunity to introduce children to my favourite sport. I just wish Cricket tots was around when I was 4!Katie Wolfe
I started playing cricket at my school when I was 8, and joined the England Women’s Academy programme aged 16. So it shows the earlier you start the better! I can’t wait to see more children joining Cricket tots and playing the game.”
If Katie drops by your class, make sure she shows you the perfect bowling technique!
