Table Cricket Update - June 2016
Wednesday 15th June, 2016
Inclusive Cricket Festival held at Attenborough CC

Despite the bad weather, the event turned out to be a fantastic day for all the participants.  As Kwik cricket was "off the cards" with the pitch being waterlogged, my backup plan was to play a table cricket festival.

With four teams taking part: 2 teams from Beech Academy, a team each from Redhill Academy and Space Inclusive, we all had a great time and their enthusiasm was extremely exciting to watch and a pleasure to be involved in.

Thanks go to Trent Bridge for supporting this event and providing 4 community coaches to help with the umpiring and scoring, also to Rachel Ward from CP Sport for her support.

This was our second Inclusive Cricket Festival and with over 50 children and carers supporting this event, it is a great tribute to one and all for their continuing support for cricket in Nottinghamshire.

Finally I would like to say a very big "Thank You" to all the children and adults who took part and for making this event such a great success.

Trophy winners were:
Holly (Redhill Academy) - Most 6s scored
Dom (Beech Academy) - Most 4s scored
Courtney B (Beech Academy) - Most wickets taken 
Paca (Space Inclusive) - Most runs scored
Vinnie (Redhill Academy) & Ashley (Space Inclusive) - Managers' Players of the festival

Well done

Table Cricket Update - October 2015

It has been an extremely busy year for me delivering table cricket and inclusive cricket to over 300 children and adults.

I began in January with a 6 week table cricket program for Space UK, Nethergate and Fountaindale.  In April I umpired and coached at the “Schools Table Cricket Competition” held at Trent University.  Following on from this with our very own successful “Space Inclusive Festival” held at The Strand in May, where 35 participants took part from three different groups; Space Inclusive, Foxwood Academy and Nethergate school.

In June I was invited by Trent Bridge to deliver inclusive cricket to 110 children at Bracken Hill’s “Sports Event Week”.  I was part of a multi activity week, where activities such as archery; rounders; netball; boccia and inclusive cricket were a few of the things the children could have a go at. 

I have also been into many other schools and care homes namely, Wells Road Centre, Central Nottingham College, Portland College, St. Giles Academy and Oakfield Academy.

With all the work I have been delivering to disabilities groups, I was invited by,

C.P. Sports to the World Games held at Harvey Hadden Centre, where I umpired the World Table Cricket matches against Australia and England.  This was a great honour and privilege to represent Attenborough CC at this event and I really enjoyed the competitiveness, atmosphere, but also the companionship that was shown by everyone.

For the next 3 months, I will be going into many more establishments to deliver table cricket and inclusive cricket to support the Sportivate funding requirements.

Table Cricket Update - June 2015

This year has been an extremely busy one even though we are only five months into 2015.

January started out with kwik cricket sessions delivered to Space Inclusive UK on behalf of Trent Bridge, followed by a table cricket session to eight teenagers from Crocus Field Centre in Nottingham.  Finishing off the month coaching kwik cricket at Nethergate School and table cricket to Fountaindale School in Mansfield.

February continued in the same vein with kwik cricket at Nethergate, Space Inclusive UK, Kirklington Primary School in a picturesque village to over 30 pupils on a lovely day's visit.

March saw me going to Foxwood Academy to deliver four weeks of table cricket sessions to their senior members of the school and continued sessions into Space Inclusive UK.

In April I represented Attenborough at a Presentation Event for Wells Road Centre followed by two further coaching sessions to their patients and finishing off with a “Schools Table Cricket” event held at Westwood Sports Centre, Trent University campus in Clifton.

May has been quite a month with the start of a seven-week kwik cricket programme to Portland College and the “Space Inclusive UK Festival” held at Attenborough on 12th.  This event saw children from the age of 14 up to adults of 25, playing kwik cricket in the morning against Foxwood Academy and Nethergate School, plus indoor table cricket with fun games of “crazy table cricket” designed by Nottingham Trent University and Doug Williamson the founder of table cricket and skills activities to help players enhance their abilities and just have lots of fun.  A great day was had by one and all, even if the weather was somewhat cool!!

Looking forward - Attenborough have been given Sportivate funding to help promote and deliver table cricket into the local community and make Attenborough the Club at the forefront of delivering table cricket into Nottinghamshire.

National Table Cricket Community League Finals

The Table Cricket national finals were held on Sunday December 7th at Trent Bridge and many congratulations go to Nottingham's own Portland College who won the event after qualifying for the finals by winning the South Nottinghamshire Table Cricket League at Attenborough CC. Please click here for a full report from the CP Sport website.

South Nottinghamshire Table Cricket League
Final Round Matches held at Attenborough CC
on Wednesday 8 October, 2014

On Wednesday 8 October 2014, Attenborough Cricket Club were privileged to host the final round of South Notts Table Cricket League matches.  Even though the weather was dull and wet outside, our Clubhouse was yet again buzzing with keen and enthusiastic players.

Unfortunately due to complications, Foxwood Academy were unable to attend the final round matches and with our current league leader Portland being delayed in traffic - I quickly rescheduled the day's play.

We started off with Central Notts College playing West Notts College - this game was closely contested with West Notts coming out victors by just 44 runs.

Portland College arrived safety and after a quick practice session, they played two matches one after the other.  The first game against Central Notts College saw Portland win by just 2 runs, a fabulous display by both teams.  Portland then went on to win their final game against West Notts College by 83 runs.

Tallying all the points currently scored, I was able to determine that Portland College could not be beaten.  Therefore I was able to proudly announce Portland College Champions of the South Nottinghamshire Table Cricket League.

Portland College will now go on to represent South Notts at the National Finals, which are being held at Trent Bridge on Sunday 7th December 2014.

I would like to send my thanks to:

Chilwell School who provided us with a table tennis table
Shirley for providing such lovely food and greatly appreciated by one and all
Jack Kavanagh (Sport Volunteer Coordinator at Central College Nottingham) and Jack Arnold (Trent Bridge) for providing volunteers
Jim Dymond and John Birkin who helped out at both the first round of matches on 12 June 2014 and in the final round of matches on 8 October 2014
All the players from each team who, without them, there would not be a community league

Good Luck to Portland College and I look forward to seeing you all next year.

Table Cricket Update - August 2014

Following on from delivering table cricket to Foxwood Academy earlier this year and the very successful first round of the Table Cricket League match held at Attenborough C.C. on 12 June 2014, in which Portland College winners of all their first round games are current leaders of the South Nottinghamshire Table Cricket League table (see website for full details).

I have started promoting our Satellite Club through all social media including IRIS, in which we have an article in their June Magazine - (Article10). Unfortunately no leads have come from this at the moment, but I am now working on a new strategy to promote the Club, which I will be going into schools, adult centres and events throughout the region being supported by Nottingham County Council and Broxtowe Borough Council.

The first of which I attended on Saturday 26 July 2014 - “Inclusive Family Sports Day” at the Forest Recreational Ground in Nottingham. The event was showered in beautiful sunshine, I had 80 children, mum’s, dad’s and grandparents having ago for the first time at table cricket and a further 28 people just wanting to watch - which was a wonderful achievement, because we were competing against bouncy castles, inflatable balls, inflatable slides and all manner of running races.

I would like to hear from anyone, who works or knows of someone who works, in disability environment and would like me to come along and deliver a table cricket tester session OR anyone who has ideas to promote table cricket.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me here.

Table Cricket Update - June 2014

Hosting the first round of Notts Table Cricket League matches on June 12th 2014 saw another fabulous day with beautiful sunshine, our Club house buzzing with keen enthusiastic players and supporters playing a game of Kwik cricket on the outfield.

After a troubled trip with Nottingham tram works causing a delay to the start, the first matches saw Foxwood Academy play Central Notts College and Portland College play West Notts College. Both matches were very closely contested with Foxwood Academy and Portland College coming out victors. Throughout the day there were high scoring matches with five out of the six games needing 293 or over to win.

Portland College currently lead the league table with three wins out of three, in second place are West Notts College with two wins, in 3rd place Foxwood Academy and in 4th place Central Notts College. The second round of matches will be held in early October, venue to be confirmed.

Congratulations go to Luke (West Notts College) who currently leads the batting figures with 76 runs and Josh (Portland) who leads the bowling figures with 7 wickets.

I would like to thank all players, carers, volunteers and supporters who made this event a very special one.
Special thanks go to Shirley Shaw for laying on a splendid feast for everyone, our umpires, scorers and washer uppers.  Suraj Karavadra, Gurpej Landa, Jack Arnold, Jim Dymond (umpires), Callum Taylor, Martin Firbank (scorers) and John Birkin (umpire come kitchen helper) who all did a fabulous job allowing everything to run like clockwork.
