Cricket - Walking

If any members would like to play walking cricket this summer 2021 you can contact Darren Talbot at Twenty20 Community Cricket via the link below.

We had hoped to form our own team this year but sourcing a local venue is proving difficult and we feel it is important for members to have an option to play this year if they want to.

The venue will be at the Cobham Avorians CC on Thursdays from 10.30 - 12.00 noon commencing April 22nd 2021

You can contact Darren by email via the link below.

Walking Cricket

Hello! Thank you for visiting this page, the home of Walking Cricket within the U3A. My Name is Mac McKechnie, and I co-ordinate Walking Cricket in Barnsley U3A. And I am also the U3A Adviser on Walking Cricket.

Walking cricket aims to create an interesting sport that improves fitness, and enables participants to have fun as part of a team experience. I extend a warm welcome to all members of the BU3A to consider creating groups within your U3A’s, and enjoy some stimulating exercise as part of a team once every week or fortnight.

This is an all year-round sport, and the only current team within the U3A is one which I set up in Barnsley in Yorkshire. We played our first match in January 2019, and from there we are building a foundation which will allow us to explore possibilities with any other Walking Cricket teams in the area. There must be many retired men out there in particular who were never really into football, but remember with fondness playing cricket. Likewise, many retired ladies who don’t fancy chasing a football, but who will remember with fondness the rounders games of their youth. Mixed walking cricket is a more relaxed, yet still a powerful team game that helps to recreate some of those past sporting activities and memories.

My aim is to provide support and assistance to any U3A wishing to set up their own cricket groups. - Lets have a conversation! Below you will find links to a youtube video, and a presentation I have prepared in PDF format. Please have a good look, and get in contact.
