Varsity Cricket

Description

Students make their way around the cricket grounds learning about a different aspect of Cricket. Students will attend three different workshops on the day and will have the opportunity to look around the grounds on a guided tour. One workshop is related to the maths behind cricket looking at averages and calculations that are involved in a sport like cricket, the second workshop is a chance to get active and have a go at playing some indoor cricket. The last workshop will include information on alternative careers in sport – that aren’t related to playing the sport- but supporting the running of it. Students will also get a free ticket to attend the Varsity match between University of Leicester and De Montfort to experience cricket at a university level as well as access to the Pro T20 match after the event. This event is typically held in May.
