Staying Active at Home
We want to give all of our participants access to valuable exercises, skills drills and activities to help everyone stay active and engaged with the programme at home, with all Wicketz sessions currently suspended.
It is vital that we keep the body and mind active during these times so we've created an activity pack, thanks to our brilliant Development Officers, to keep you engaged with Wicketz from home. Visit this page every week and we'll have a new activity for you to take part in
This week we ask you to watch some Sky Sports Masterclasses here including those with a number of the game's greats. Including Muttiah Muralitharan, Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and more. We also have one from BT Sport with Kevin Pietersen, Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting for you to watch here.
Please send your video or photo entries to us via email and on social media. Make sure you tag the Lord’s Taverners when you do, using #couchcricket
Online safety reminder - please read this document including vital advice to take on board during a time of increased internet use.
Wash your hands, keep safe and click here to email us if you have any questions.
