The Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, is delighted to invite you to participate in the Mayor’s Cricket Cup – a one-day inter-generational cricket event on Sunday 8th September 2019 at Edgbaston Stadium.
Following England’s thrilling victory at this year’s Cricket World Cup, the Mayor is calling on boys and girls aged 13-16 and adults over the age of 60 to take part. The event will give young people the chance to play with the older generation at one of the country’s most iconic venues, Edgbaston.
The event is part of Andy Street’s ongoing commitment to bringing different communities together, and enabling people of all ages to stay active.
The Mayor’s Cricket Cup will also help to show off the West Midlands’ rich cultural diversity, something that was on show with the England cricket team.
The tournament is being supported by Warwickshire County Cricket Club, with the club providing professional coaches and umpires on the day.
No previous experience of cricket is needed, just an enthusiasm to have a go and get involved.
Registration for places is now open for young people aged 13-16, and adults aged over 60. 100 places in total will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
