Our cricket teams are looking for local kids up to join under 14 teams from their clubs for a Quik Cricket game at noon this Sunday. If you have an 11 to 14 year old who might like to give cricket a go, contact Martin Couch on 07587 025840

So what is Quik - or Kwik - cricket?

Kwik cricket (known as MILO Walla cricket in Australia, and MILO Black Cricket in New Zealand) is a high-speed version of cricket aimed mainly at encouraging children to take part in the main sport.

Many of the rules are adapted from cricket, but Kwik cricket is played with a plastic bat and ball (for obvious safety and physical reasons), and plastic cones to mark the maximum width of a legally bowled ball. The rules can be altered so that virtually any number of children can play in the time available, and the game can be made easier or more difficult by changing the physical dimensions of the pitch (changing the width of the wickets, increasing the distance between the wickets, widening or narrowing the crease, pulling in or pushing out the boundary, etc.).
