“They'll do fun things as well.”

Founded in 1972, Barby Cricket Club offers teams for players of all ages, including five senior teams, two social teams, and nine teams for juniors.

“We've got a lot of juniors at the moment,” said Kerry.

The club has around 22 coaches and several staff members to ensure that "everything runs smoothly."

Kerry said that the club house's amenities have undergone significant changes and upgrades throughout the years. The team now offers a "well-stocked" bar in addition to changing facilities.

“It started off really small, and then we expanded,” said Kerry.

This year, the Junior Summer Camps’ sessions are all run by Zach Ferris, a qualified coach from Australia.

Kerry said: “The summer camps are successful, and it's quite condensed coaching.

“The children just need to have a basic knowledge of the sport.”
