As cricketers across England and Wales get ready to return to play from today, unprecedented demand has been seen for the ECBs flagship junior programmes, Dynamos Cricket and All Stars Cricket.

Since registrations opened a week ago, over 35,000 children have signed up to the two programmes, which are designed to help kids develop new cricketing skills and begin a lifelong love for the game.

Dynamos Cricket is for children aged 8-11, graduating from All Stars Cricket. The programme also caters for those who are totally new to the sport.

Both programmes are aligned with the government’s commitment to exercise and the Chief Medical Officer’s guidance that children should aim for 60 minutes of physical activity a day

The news comes as the latest unlocking on the government roadmap has allowed for the reopening of grassroots sport. From today, organised outdoor cricket and organised outdoor coaching can resume in line with Government guidance and safeguarding

“It is brilliant news that so many children are already signed up for Dynamos and All Stars Cricket," said Tammy Beaumont, England and London Spirit star.

"I’m sure kids and adults around the country are incredibly excited to be back playing and we are all looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic summer of sport.”
