Richmondshire Cricket Club goes Dutch

Keep Calm Go Dutch

In a couple of weeks time it’s National Cricket Day (24th June) and Richmondshire Cricket Club will be adding a splash of Orange to the green fields of Richmond as they welcome some Dutch visitors from Jac.P.Thijsse College in Amsterdam.

Fifty Dutch school boys and girls will be introduced to the wonderfully English game of cricket, with Yorkshire Cricket Board, Richmond School and the Club providing a range of fun cricket-related activities, coaching throughout the day, culminating in a round-robin tournament sponsored by SG Petch, the Club’s partner in providing cricket throughout Richmondshire’s schools.

Richmond Mayor Clive World will open the Club’s revamped internal facilities which were funded through Richmondshire District Council’s Community Opportunities Fund.

The visitors will also be treated to that most quintessential of English culinary delights – the cricket tea – lovingly prepared by members of the club.

You can join in on Tuesday evening 23rd June as the club welcome their Dutch guests at 6pm with a BBQ, followed by a coaching session led by Mike Layfield and Tom Stockton.
