U9s KWIK Cricket Festivals 2020

Kent Cricket Mini Super 8s

The Under 9 Mini Super 8’s club competition is back for 2020.

Clubs from all around the county compete at a local level during June at mini festivals, battling it out for a place at the county finals day in September, which will again be held at the prestigious county ground Beckenham.

The competition is aimed as an introduction to the wondrous game of cricket, for beginners to the game (hardball capable and area program players are not permitted), ideal for those who have progressed through the ECB All Stars programme.

The fast paced action packed games are played as pair’s Kwik cricket, each batting pair facing 2 overs, and everyone gets to bowl an over.
