The Bermuda Cricket Board [BCB] will be hosting a Pee Wee ‘Have-A-Go’ Cricket Program beginning on Saturday, February 29 at the Berkeley Institute gym.

A spokesperson said, “Registration for the free BCB Pee Wee ‘Have-A-Go’ Cricket Program for children ages 5 – 7 opens today. The program takes place at Berkeley Institute gym on Saturday, February 29 and runs every Saturday, finishing on March 21.

“During the sessions, the players will be introduced to the basics of cricket with the main aim of having fun. Utilizing the “Have-a-go” cricket equipment, coaches will work with the players on learning the basics skills of catching, bowling and batting with the aim of playing a game in the last session against the parents.
