NEWS AND JOBS UPDATED DAILY ONLINE AT WWW.SPORTSMANAGEMENT.CO.UK Cage Cricket campaign launched


Cricketing stars including Sir Ian Botham have teamed up with MPs in London for the launch of a campaign to pro- mote Cage Cricket as a new “street version” of the sport. Devised by ex-Hampshire


cricketer Lawrence Prittipaul and Trevor McArdle, the concept involves six players competing against each other and scoring points in cricket’s main disciplines of batting, bowling and fi elding. Cage Cricket is designed


to increase participation and remove barriers such as lack of time, space and money. Funding is now being sought to support the roll-out of Cage Cricket across the country, with a crowd-fund- ing campaign fronted by Botham aiming to reach out to fans and businesses. Portsmouth has been earmarked as one of the fi rst locations for bespoke cricket cages.


A cage was installed at Parliament to mark the launch of the campaign According to Cage Cricket, there are around


12,500 multi-use games areas in the UK “per- fectly suited” to supporting the game. Sir Ian said: “It’s a concept for anyone and


everyone whether they’re fi t, old, young or dis- abled. It’s all about accessibility.” Read more: http://lei.sr?a=F0a2L
