Notts Outlaws are hoping to attract a bumper crowd to Trent Bridge after planning a day of activities to entertain members of local cricket and sports clubs.

The Friends Provident Trophy fixture against Northants Steelbacks on Sunday 4th May is the club’s first home game of the season with the family-friendly one day format promising to provide aggressive bowling and big hits from both sides.

Community Coaches will deliver free coaching sessions to children of all abilities throughout the day whilst representatives from Nottingham Rugby Club and Ridewise cycling will also be in attendance.

“Local league clubs have a big part to play in promoting cricket in the region and in turn, it is our responsibility as the County side to make Trent Bridge a welcoming place to watch some of the world’s best cricketers,” said Notts Community Marketing Officer Alex Picker.

“The club day initiative will give young players, team coaches and families a great opportunity to enjoy a day’s cricket at a Test Match venue with lots of activities to break up the day.

“We hope that representatives from all local clubs will attend but are not limited to club members and anyone can get involved.”

Masseurs from city centre therapists re:store naturally will provide free treatments throughout the day and a face painter will be on hand to add colour to the occasion.

Tea ladies from local clubs will be battling for the right to call their cakes the best in the region and the Notts Outlaws players will sign autographs after the match.

Tickets for the match cost £13 for adults and £7 for under 16’s, senior citizens and students with a valid NUS card.

Family tickets valid for two adults and two under 16’s cost £33 and discounts are available for group bookings.

Supporters can make reservations for a three-course Sunday Lunch priced at £15.45 per person, to be served in the Derek Randall suite between 12 noon and 2pm, by calling Trudie in the Sales Office  on 01159823000.
