Summer Cluster Cricket Competitions 2023

29th May 2023

On Wednesday 24th May 2023 the Morden and Central Wimbledon Clusters combined for a festival of kwik-cricket in the glorious sunshine at Old Ruts Cricket Club.

Merton SSP hosted a Yr 5/6 mini competition for 5 teams from Morden Cluster whilst 3 Yr 3/4 teams took part from Wimbledon.

The day was full of energy and excitement with most children taking part in the new Dynamo cricket format for the first time. In this version of the game, batters are permitted a free hit in which they can strike a stationary ball from the batting tee should a no-ball or a wide be called by the umpire. The children were fast to adapt to the new rules and some excellent bowling, fielding and batting was on display from all year groups.

Thanks to the 10 Yr 8 sports leaders from Rutlish school. The boys did a great job in calling the balls and scoring the games – all good practice for them as they will be returning for the borough championships on 9th June 2023.

Thanks to the following schools for taking part:

Morden, Poplar, Abbotsbury, Aragon, Malmesbury

Wimbledon Park, Bishop Gilpin, Merton Park

We wish you all the very best with cricket in your school and are looking forward to the development comps and borough champs coming up this summer.
