Panathlon delivered their first ever Table Cricket course today! The new course and table cricket qualification has been developed by CP Sport and The Lord’s Taverners Table Cricket development program.
Hosted at Linden Lodge, 17 delegates from across London were taken through the history of the game, basic rules, umpiring & scoring in the first session, then more advanced rules, pathways for players and the future of the game in the second session. Both sessions also included playing the game, everyone having a go at batting, active fielding, bowling, scoring and umpiring.
In the second session we played some competitive fixtures within the group (the spirit of the game being stretched at times!) and then inventing some practical variation games for coaching. All the delegates will receive the CP Sport Table Cricket qualification.
Tim Richmond, Head of PE at Linden Lodge, “The table cricket course delivered on all its outcomes. It was a well paced course for the content which kept interest throughout and provided a fun platform for absorbing the required knowledge needed to coach and officiate the game.”
All 32 London Boroughs will provide Table Cricket teams in the Panathlon Challenge between January and June 2012.
