Cricket is the country's summer sport for a reason: it's a fun family way to get outdoors, get active and make friends for life. Morriston CC has been giving people this chance to participate in local community cricket for 150 years, and we would love you to join the fun.
Whoever you are, we know you will feel right at home:
Cricket in Morriston for Young People
The summer is made for cricket: It gets you out of the house when the sun is shining, you can meet up with old friends, make new ones and get all the benefits of sport:
Competing in a friendly environment that builds your confidence
Keeping your body healthy and fit through running, jumping, throwing and hitting
Testing yourself as an individual and in a team
...And of course HAVING FUN!
Morriston Cricket Club has young players of all ages. The youngest member is 7 years old and there are age-group teams for everyone aged 8-14 years old.
The club runs a complete 10 week winter training plan, and plays a full season of after school cricket and training from April-August. We focus on maximum participation and fun for all young cricketers. Fully-qualified ECB Coaches make sure you will love every moment when you join the club.
What if I have never played before?
Every year, we welcome complete beginners and teach the basics to all ages. Weekly structured training means you will quickly learn the secrets of the game. Even if you are a total beginner you will be given the chance to participate at a level that you feel ready to play.
Can you help me become a professional cricketer?
Morriston has a good record of progressing players into regional cricket too. That means that when you show some talent as a player, you can get representative honours, play cricket for Wales and begin your journey towards the professional game.
What about the parents?
And for Mum and Dad? The good news is that Morriston has a fully stocked tea room so you can enjoy tea/coffee, soft drinks, hot and cold food and even a beer (for the parents of course). Parents are welcome to sit in the sun and watch the games that take a couple of hours after school.
Sounds like fun?
