Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket hosted an MCC Spirit of Cricket Girls Camp on  23rd and 24th August at Soar Valley College.

Almost 40 girls from around the county gathered at the college to take part in two days of action packed and fun-filled cricket activities. The girls were lucky enough to be joined by two England Women Cricketers, Jenny Gunn and Caroline Atkins, who provided excellent guidance and passed on all their expertise.

The two days consisted of batting, bowling and fielding stations, mini games for prizes and a whole day tournament on the second day, where the girls got the opportunity to play lots of kwik cricket matches against each other.

The camp ended with a Q&A session, with the girls firing lots of questions at Jenny and Caroline!

Leicestershire and  Rutland Cricket would like to thank Jenny and Caroline for not only giving up their time to coach all the girls, but also contributing to the prizes with some signed England Cricket kit. We would also like to thank coaches Stephen Franklin and Chris Leonard who also helped make the camp a great success.
