didi cricket has got off to a great start with four sessions at Stoke Orchard Community Centre near Cheltenham producing plenty of fun, laughter and no little skill!
Coach Keith Smith is the first didi rugby coach in the country to pilot the new classes and he has been delighted with what he has seen.
With similar principles being applied from his didi rugby classes across the Cheltenham area, sports lover Keith has seen children extend their sporting prowess with fun and games involving a bat and ball this time.
“We were absolutely full for the first week with 30 kids turning up for a taster session,” said Keith.
“With so many of them coming back in the following weeks too, I think they clearly enjoyed themselves and the kids were better than I expected.

“It was great to see so many of them getting a quick grasp of hitting a ball after I had taught them how to hold a bat and the parent engagement was lovely to see as well.
“I had some really positive comments afterwards and am looking forward to carrying on the classes now.”
Regular classes will get underway from Sunday 1 March at Stoke Orchard Community Centre and Keith is looking for more settings to expand his list of venues and extra coaches to help oversee the sessions.
If any cricket club in the Cheltenham, Gloucester and Forest of Dean areas are interested in hosting didi cricket sessions and maybe open up a pathway to provide possible future members of their club, please get in touch via our Facebook page or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
