Great first week of Summer Smash at Willoughby CC


Week 2 of Twenty20 Community Cricket’ Summer Smash Cricket Camps saw the first of our two weeks back at Willoughby Cricket Club in Warwickshire.

It is now the fifth year we have been at Willoughby CC - a village club in picturesque surroundings based near Rugby in Warwickshire close to the county border with Northamptonshire, and our first week for 2016 has proved just as successful as those before it...with another still to come.

During the course of the week, coaches Wayne, Kieran and George put local youngsters from around the Rugby, Daventry and Warwickshire/Northants borders through their paces with a series of skills sessions all rounded off with Twenty20 style matches in the afternoon between the locally named Willoughby Willows and Rugby Highwaymen

Monday was a focus on batting and a variety of skills and shots adapted to the T20 game, which were put to the test in a good first Twenty20 game which ended an energetic first day.
