July 11, 2019

Suffolk Cricket are delighted to announce the return of the KBB Grassroots Cricket Festival taking place between the 7th-9th August at Copdock and OI Cricket Club.

To enter a team into the 2019 festival please follow – KBB Grassroots Festival Entry

Last year saw the first ‘KBB Grassroots Cricket Festival’ take place at Copdock & Old Ipswichian Cricket Club. It was a glorious couple of days with perfect weather for Cricket! The event was put together with the organisation of Suffolk Cricket, and the generous sponsorship of The KBB Centre and the use of the facilities at Copdock & Old Ipswichian Cricket Club.

This year we hope to build on this and have even more children join for what will hopefully now be an annual event. Due to its popularity the event has been extended this year to a 3 day event. Wednesday 7th, Thursday 8th and Friday 9th of August.

Roger Peck of KBB Centre said “The KBB Centre are very proud to sponsor the KBB Grassroots Cricket Festival. As a local business we are passionate about supporting the community and local sport, particularly at Grassroots level. We hope that the festival will increase participation and awareness of the sport for youngsters and help inspire a new generation of cricket players and enthusiasts in the area. We believe it’s very important to encourage children to partake in sports and to help them reach their potential, aiding both their personal and sporting growth.
We are delighted to have been in a position to support the event and to have been associated with the inaugural Suffolk Cricket Grass Roots Festival. It was extremely rewarding to learn that there were in excess of 200 children who benefited over the two days last year.

We do hope the Festival becomes an annual fixture in the Suffolk Cricket calendar and look forward to being able to assist with the continued development of the event in the foreseeable future.”
