On Saturday, the 2nd of July, our cricket simulator we were part of a charity cricket match held by Lady Taverners and Centre Point at the Lord's Cricket ground (aka Home of Cricket). The All Star cricket match was being challenged for the Petterson trophy that was won by Centre Point the previous year.
Despite the heavy rains on Saturday night, the groundsmen made sure everything was in place for Sunday's Spalding Town Cricket Club open day. The open day was held to raise funds for the club. The day began with the under 9's and 11's having a training session followed by simultaneous cricket matches being played on the massive ground. With parents coming in numbers to support their young stars as well as enjoy the plenty of activities such as the bouncing castles and our Batfast cricket simulator definitely made their day worth a while.
As our first year in partnership with Lashings All-Stars comes to an end it’s time for a debrief of the season. We’ve travelled all over the country taking the Cricket Simulator with us. From Weston-super-Mare at the start of the season, over to Brighton, and all the way up to Boston, to name just few of the great cricket clubs we have been too. But theres always been one thing in common. The Lashings All-stars go on unbeaten.
Last weekend we travelled down from our home in Loughborough to Guildford, visiting Surrey sports park where the amazing GoFest took place. A two-day event where children, brothers, sisters, mums and dads all got to be involved in a family fun affair. Our Batfast Cricket Simulator was accompanied by over 40 different sports from Archery-tag to Volleyball.
Its always great to have a family fun day filled with activities to keep everyone entertained. The Krishna Avanti School in London hosted this event in order to raise funds for the school and we were so happy to be a part of their great cause. Having worked with them in the past during the FOAH summer fair showed they really loved our product.
We're aiming to make our presence wherever possible. And this was a great opportunity for us test a different market altogether. This event was a 24 hour running marathon, that could be ran in teams or as individuals. It took place throughout the night with runners running through the woods in flood lights.
The weather could not have been any better to be part of such a successful event hosted by the Friends of Avanti House committee. We were really happy to have helped the school raise funds for their new project and hope to be part of such events in the near future. The Batfast simulator was among the key attractions that kept the crowd entertained throughout the day.
The Ageas Bowl is home to Hampshire Cricket, and on 18th and 25th June 2016, they hosted the Natwest T20 Blast matches against Sussex Cricket and Gloucestershire Cricket respectively, which we were a part of. Despite rain causing both matches to be abandoned, the fans found other sorts of activities to keep them busy. That included the Batfast Cricket Simulator, Bouncing Castles, Animal Greetings and getting entertained with Reggae music by the legend Ivan J.
On 9th June 2016, we were part of the event that celebrated the Queen's 90th Birthday at the Thame, in Oxford. It was held by the Manoj Parmar Cricket Academy and we were glad to be a big part of the event. Despite the cloudy and rainy forecast, the fans of the sport did not disappoint with their presence as they came out in numbers to cheer the young lads who played gully (street) cricket. Manoj Parmar, who has previously played for the Indian National team and is the founder of MP Sports Cricket Academy was the brains of this event and no one was let down.
