A team of Under 11 girl kwik cricketers from Witchford will represent Cambridgeshire at this year’s national finals.

These will be held at Essex County Cricket Club Ground in Chelmsford later this month.

The Rackham Church of England Primary School won all the matches in their section at the district tournament.

They then had a near perfect record at the county finals.

Sid Wales, cricket coach and retired Rackham headteacher, said: “We are so proud of what they have achieved. It’s a magnificent success story by an enthusiastic group of girls.”

Kwik cricket is a high-speed version of cricket aimed mainly at encouraging children to take part in the main sport, with an emphasis on participation and enjoyment.

Each kwik cricket team has eight players (both girls and boys) and bats for eight overs. Games are played with a plastic bat and ball.

Although teams are generally eight a side, any number can play in a match, from two to 32.
