FEBRUARY 2022 - WALKING CRICKET HAS BEEN RUNNING WELL
We recently started our first sessions of Walking Cricket this month and it's been a great success! Whether you’re batting, bowling, or fielding, it’s a great form of gentle cardio exercise. Plus it improves both agility and hand-eye coordination.
This new activity can appeal to older men and women who have become lonely or isolated to get back involved in their local community, have fun, improve mental health, socialize, and meet new people.
Check out a picture from one of our previous sessions and learn more below!

The “Rutland Cricket Centre” stands to be the only Cricket Specific facility in the county of Rutland, due to open later this month. The Centre will be powered by a local team of highly respected professional coaches, and stands to be a great addition to the county's sporting offering.
Director Tom Flowers says;
“We have been researching the perfect area and facility for a long time and now have the funding and backing to deliver this facility to local cricketers in the perfect location.
We hope that the Rutland Cricket Centre provides a much-needed facility for the area, benefitting the many cricketers, individuals, children, adults, females, disability cricketers and more: our staff really cannot wait to get going on this!
The facilities aim is to become the centrepiece of Rutland Cricket during the off season, connecting Rutland’s cricketing market towns of Oakham and Uppingham, whilst also being very accessible for neighbouring cricketing hotbeds of Stamford, Oundle and Market Harborough, all accessible within 30 minutes to the venue.
With no other cricket specific facilities like this within a 24 Mile Radius, both the Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket League (12 Divisions) and Northamptonshire Cricket Leagues (14 Divisions) clubs and their players will be able to have access to a great winter training option for the off season from October to April.
The centre will be open for lane and whole hall hire, as well as 121 lessons and bowling machine usage, with video analysis available.
There has never been a better time for us to release this to the community, at a time when we are all in need of some positive news we hope the RCC can bring some positivity and enjoyment back to the people of Rutland as we continue to battle through this test.”
