THAMES Valley Cricket has opened a new academy for talented young players at Wargrave Cricket Club.
The academy, which is to run alongside an already established academy at Cookham Dean Cricket Club, will cater for youngsters on an invite-only basis after an initial trial.
All players are welcome to attend the free trials, which start on Monday, April 28 at Cookham Dean (4.30pm to 6pm for U7s and U8s and 6pm to 7.30pm for U9s and U13s).
An additional session will be held at Wargrave between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Thursday April 24 for U9s through to U13.
Thames Valley Cricket, a specialist cricket provider, say the idea is to put youngsters through all aspects of the game, testing their technical, tactical, mental and physical abilities.
