Another great week at Willoughby CC to end 2016 Summer Smash in Warwickshire.


Week 2 of Twenty20 Community Cricket’ Summer Smash Cricket Camps at Willoughby Cricket Club in Warwickshire was a great success to bring the curtain down on our programme of courses in the Midlands for 2016.

The five days of our second week at the pretty village club based near Rugby on the Warwickshire/Northants border were again a resounding success with some cricket played and some useful cricketing local talent on show.

Coaches Wayne, George and Mo put local youngsters from Rugby, Daventry and further afield through their paces with a series of skills sessions together with Twenty20 style matches in the afternoon between the locally named Willoughby Willows and Rugby Highwaymen.

Day 1 on 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.

Tuesday saw attention switch to bowling in a T20 game with a look at how to bowl at various points in a T20 innings with the afternoon’s game another close encounter.
